Lake level is at 606.8. Water temp is about 49 degree’s. That, of course, will vary depending on where and when you check it. Water is still pretty colored.
CRAPPIE: They still seem to be mostly out in the deeper water. 20 to 25 FOW and down near the bottom. On those rare warm days with sunshine you certainly can find them higher in the water column and in shallower water. Jigs and/or minnows are working. It is mostly a matter of finding them right now as they stage for the spawn. The saying around this lake is any color jig will work as long as it has chartreuse in it.
CATFISH: The main catch right now is blue’s. We haven’t seen any monsters, but good solid 30# fish. Channel cats are biting sporadically.
BASS: White Bass have been hitting up into the rivers and creeks. As usual, anything white or shiny will attract a bite from them. As you can see from the picture page there is some largemouth activity as shown by the 7# beauty on there. That one was caught from shore.
