Advice on Reservoir Fishing

Recommended Posts

Up until recently I have done fairly well at this reservoir I fish. The water has dropped a lot and there is a lot of mud where the water used to be. I can barely get a hit anymore. I fished today and didn't even get one hit at all. Not sure what's going on. Night time temperatures have dropped somewhat but daytimes are still fairly hot. They are not hitting aggressively like they used to either. Any suggestions? I have read some of the articles in the Bass Resources but nothing seems to work right now.

On one of the reservoirs I fish, the department let it drain to a
certain level while road construction was going on nearby - they
didn't want to obstruct bridge building with the usual overflow
when the hard rains hit.

For the first couple years of this it was tough to get a bite to the
point I stopped fishing it. But other friends had success at times
while the water level was low.

Might need to downsize some of your gear, line, and lure size and
slow down your presentation a little. See if that gets you a bite...

Wish I could help more. :(
