Sutton

Rating - Fair   

Wednesday, May 15 2019
Sutton Lake is known for its largemouth and smallmouth bass, and panfish. Its a deep and steep sided lake with lots of rock and blown down shoreline trees. Largemouth will be moving from deep water winter locations to shallower water as the water temperatures increase. Find areas where shallow water with cover is next to deeper water. Riprap banks, shallow points, and road beds, standing timber as well as trees that have fallen. Head of coves can also be productive springtime bass locations. Slower moving lures such as plastic worms hooked wacky style and progress to faster crankbaits and topwater lures as temperatures increase. Pre-spawn bass will also be in just 8-10 feet of water as temperatures climb before moving onto the beds. Smallmouth can be found in upper end of lake in spring all the way to the first riffle up to the Elk. Crappie, bluegill, and rock bass (panfish) this time of year is great.
