Update 5/27/15 Wednesday, May 27, 2015 by Ron
Lake level is 609.0. We received about 3″ of rain over the past week, though I must say, the weather cooperated pretty well over the 3 day weekend with most of it coming in at night with only a couple of daytime showers. The water will definitely have some color to it now, though not chocolate milk. Water temps are about 70.
CRAPPIE: Really scattered now. We have heard of people catching them in 4 FOW as well as 20 and near the bottom. Black/chartreuse still seems to be the most popular color along with minnows and nibbles. There are a lot of smaller fish to weed through, but if you are patient and persistent there are also some good fish to catch. We have seen a lot of 12-15″ fish.
BASS: The whites are starting to hit in the normal spots around islands, points, and underwater humps. No word on largemouth these past few days.
CATFISH: We have seen some dandy flatheads and blues come in. It seems they are heading for their spawning areas. We also hear of a lot of channel cats being caught, both on rod/reel, and also on jugs and trotlines.
NOTES: Some of you may have noticed our redesigned store. The purpose of that is to start serving some food on Friday and Saturday nights. We will have a variety, but certainly pulled pork and some type of chicken, either fried or grilled/baked. We also added an eating area in back of the store for people to sit and eat. That part isn’t quite done yet, but is useable. The bar will be finished soon as well. Hopefully you will come and enjoy it.
