UPDATE 10/26/17

Lake level is 602.5 and water temp is lower 60’s. Clarity is quite good at a couple of feet.

CRAPPIE: Fishing is still pretty good around deep timber, bridge piers and some are also being caught shallow up in the creek arms. Pink seems to still be a good color but black/chartreuse is also prett good. Minnows and nibbles are both good additions. There are a lot of 10-12″ fish being caught and there is no reason to think it will not continue until freezeup.

BASS: Whites are being caught back in the creek arms and there are a lot of short largemouth back there as well. We have not heard much on the keeper sized largemouth.

CATFISH: There are a good amount of blues getting caught on shad and a few flatheads as well. Goldfish also work but shad seems to be the bait of choice right now.

NOTES: This weekend is the early youth hunt for deer. It is also our annual appreciation party, which will be held on Saturday from 5 till whenever. We always have a good time so stop on in and say hello.

    Is Indian Creek Marina still open to get gas? If so, does anyone know how much longer they will be open and the hours? I tried e-mailing them but got no reply so they may be already closed.
