Lake level is 606.7. Water is still murky for the most part. Water temp is in the low 60′s.
CRAPPIE: Males are close to shore while females are out in somewhat deeper water yet. Warm sunny days will find some males on the bank. Jigs will work as will a minnow under a bobber. There are plenty of fish over 10″ to be caught. Concentrate of banks with southern exposure.
BASS: There are quite a few being caught quite close to shore. Crappie fishermen are catching them while scouring the banks for fish. We have heard of a few occasions when someone did well on white bass. You should find them way up in the creek arms.
CATFISH: Blues continue to be the main catch. Shad is the bait of choice. We did hear of one flathead last week.
