Update 11/20/15

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Lake level is at 604.5. We had 4.25″ of rain so far this week. Snow predicted for tomorrow. The wind has been howling all week so really no one has been out fishing. Deer hunting has been sporadic. It seemed to us that opening weekend saw a lot of deer killed. This was also the case statewide with about 97,000 taken. That’s good news. The other good news is that the water is finally cooling down so if you get the chance on a nice day the fish should bite. Try deep water at the edge of a channel or bridge piers.

NOTES: This will be our last weekend for BBQ for this year. We will open that back up in the spring. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Update 11/9/15

Monday, November 9th, 2015

Sorry for the delay. For some reason the website quit working for a few days. Travis did a good job of getting it back up once we found out the site was down.

Lake level is just under 602. Water temp is about 55 degree’s. It should drop over the next week or so as our temps are starting to get down. Water clarity seems to be variable depending on where you are at.

CRAPPIE: The bite is getting better in shallow water. There are a lot of smaller fish, but some nice ones as well. As the water cools to 50 or so we should see a turnover and the fish will really start to bite up the rivers. After that, and this can happen in a pretty short timeframe, the fish will start to congregate at deep water locations. As late as it is already the turnover could be over before most people know it started. Cold water and lots of wind can make that happen.

CATFISH: There are some blues being caught as well as channel cats. Try the mouths of the larger creek arms. I would think there should be some good blues up along the dam in deep water.

BASS: The whites are biting in the same area as the crappie. We are also hearing of some good black bass being caught.

NOTES: This weekend is the opener for deer season. Be careful out there. The rut looked like it was going to start but seems to have cooled off last week. Hopefully it will pick up again by the weekend. Good Luck. Bring those deer in for pictures.
