Sutton

Rating - Good   

Tuesday, Dec 01 2020
Sutton has largemouth, spotted and smallmouth bass, and panfish Sutton is a deep steep-sided lake with lots of rock and blow down shoreline trees. Largemouth will be moving from deep open water locations to shallower water as the water temperatures decrease. Find areas where shallow water with cover is next to deeper water. Rip rap banks, deeper downwind sides of shallow points, road beds, standing timber as well as trees that have fallen are good spots to target. Mouths of coves can also be productive fall bass locations. Faster moving lures such as plastic worms/flukes, crankbaits and topwater lures work well as temperatures first begin to decrease. Bass will be in 10-15 feet of water as temperatures fall. Smallmouth can be found in rocky shoreline areas near the upper end of lake all the way to the first riffle up the Elk. Crappie, bluegill, and rockbass (panfish) this time of year is great. Try beaver huts, blow down trees, creek channels and weedbeds as water temperature decrease. Live bait (minnow on light jig) or small plastic jigs. The tailwaters of this lake also produce smallmouth, walleye, musky andpanfish. It is also stocked with trout in October, the two weeks after Columbus Day week. When streams and rivers are high sometimes the tailwaters are the only fishable water with good access and parking
