Spring Fishing Tips

Where to Find Bass in Flooded Reservoirs

Sprawling reservoirs are complicated systems, especially during high water scenarios. You’re faced with thousands of acres, complex structures, hundreds if not thousands of miles of shoreline, AND current and water clarity influences.

As he explains, the backs of creeks and upper reservoir are essentially chocolate milk, but the two thirds of the remaining main reservoir are “just high and off-colored.” During spring, bass push shallow up on top of main reservoir points, especially those with cover like brush and standing timber, while avoiding the dirty water areas. He provides the full breakdown in this video.
