Flooding?

Recommended Posts

Here in central ok we've been experiencing a lot of rain and flooding recently. What do bass do during flooding and will it shut the bite off for a while? Also do bass tend to hunker down during high flow times or do they jump ship and head down stream? Im hoping that there will still be fish left in the ponds i fish.

In high water, there will be some fish up in the newly flooded area.  Several years ago, a June tournament on Truman Lake was won by targeting picnic tables at a state park, which were all under 2 to 4 feet of water.  This was a few days after the rain had stopped, but they hadn't gotten the lake down to normal yet.

I'm pretty certain similar patterns have happened on Grand Lake before.   Wouldn't know about any other Oklahoma lakes.

 

I wouldn't fish while it was actually flooding, but after the rain stops, why not?   Come to think about it, why not give it a try while it is flooding, assuming you have a fairly safe boat?   The worst thing you could do would be to get it stuck in a really rude spot.   The first rule of boating, i.e. "Don't do dumb stuff" applies here.   The point here is that it is possible to be adventurous and not be stupid about it.
