UPDATE 8/10/16 Wednesday, Aug 10, 2016 by Ron
Lake level is at 613.7 and falling pretty quickly. Water clarity should be improving daily. The main lake has maintained fairly good water clarity. Elk Fork and South Fork were pretty dirty over the weekend.
CRAPPIE: As the tournaments show, there are still some darn nice crappie to be had on the lake. Big fish for the last tournament was 1.8# and the same fisherman had big fish the week before at 1.6#. Those are dandy fish. Search the main lake points, bluffs, etc for structure. Jig tipped with a minnow should get you some bites. You aren’t going to fill the boat, but catching a decent meal should not be to difficult. As is normal for this time of the year, look for the thermocline on your electronics. The fish will almost always be above that. On our end of the lake it is around 14 feet down.
CATFISH: There are a few flatheads and blues being caught and that should improve over the next week or two. Channel cats will still take a crawler in the areas where there was flow into the lake.
BASS: Whites seem to have slowed down, but can still be found over main lake humps and islands. I have heard of some good catches using diving plugs. I know some folks are catching some largemouth, but have not heard where. I assume deeper water 10-20 FOW.
