Bayou Lacombe

Rating - Excellent   

Sunday, Oct 03 2021
Days are shorter, leaves are starting to turn, and the bait fish are swarming in the bayou as far north as the Hwy 190 bridge. All good signs that the annual trout run is near. Not World Series just yet but we are entering the Pennant race for sure.I've been getting a few good reports east of Lacombe with specks taking soft plastics in the grass. Use a jig head in open areas and texas rig in the grassy spots. Look for that moving water as the tide falls and the marsh starts to drain into the canals and main bayou. As the water continues to cool move to a popping cork with live shrimp or your favorite Gulp bait just outside of the grass lines and points along the main bayou. Reds are still moving along the shoreline and are being caught with plastics and spoons. On the freshwater side, the Bass bite is moving to the top water side. Your favorite Spook, Whopper Plopper style plugs can be effective in the open water where your treble hooks can stay out of trouble. Tight to the grass, trash, and shoreline I would toss weightless plastics like flukes, shu shu slugs, or a trout trick. Slow down on your presentations. The bass are active and hungry but are not in the mood to chase bait. That should change as the water cools a little more. Then the cranks and chatter baits will become more productive. The panfish are scattered but you can still make a good haul if you are willing to keep moving. Tight lining with jigs in black/chartreuse and worms/crickets under a cork are productive up on the north side. Fishing should be good along the bayou and the mouth and getting better each week. Remember that we are in a transition phase and stay flexible with your offerings. The pattern should stabilize as the month wears on. Soon enough we will be able to stop complaining about the heat and start moaning about all of the cold fronts that keep coming through.
