Lake level is at 611.2 and dropping steady at a rate of about 9″ per day. Water temp has been holding about 60 but this cold weather should push that down over the next week or so. Water clarity is pretty good.
CRAPPIE: Very few fishermen reporting and even those aren’t catching many as we all wait for that great fall bite to start in the shallows. Colder temps should get it going soon. Those that are catching any are on the bridge piers so that is where I would start if it is numbers you are after.
CATFISH: There have been some smaller blues being caught on shad. As the shad should be moving back into the creek arms soon I would try to intercept the cats as they feed on them.
BASS: No reports.
NOTES: The rut has started as we are seeing bucks hot on the trail of does in the area. There are also more people seeing decent bucks moving around.
ANOTHER NOTE: Youth season is this weekend and that also means it is time for our annual anniversary party. Come join the fun on Saturday, Nov 1 for our 7th anniversary. Call the store for details.
