Summertime bass fishing is hitting its peak at Lake Lowell. The days are long, the weeds are coming up along the shorelines and anglers are catching healthy numbers of largemouth on a consistent basis. This is a time of year when you can really experiment with your tackle, as multiple tactics are likely to produce fish. Top-water frogs, plugs and poppers work well, especially early or late in the day.
Spinnerbaits, jigs and soft plastic creature baits work well for fishing in and around heavy cover. And crankbaits and jerk baits like Rapalas are effective near rocky shorelines and other open areas where they aren’t likely to get snagged up. Lake Lowell gets pretty busy on hot days and weekends, so be courteous to your fellow anglers and boaters. And remember, all bass are catch-and- release until July . If you are looking for keepers, Lowell also has channel catfish, bluegill, perch and crappie available.
