The lake continues to be muddy due to heavy rainfall over the past week or two. The bass bite is still a bit slow due to the conditions. Bass anglers are using typical dirty water tactics like dark colored T-rigged plastics, jig-n-pig combos with some topwater action thrown in early and late in the day on buzzbaits and frogs. Shallow backwaters with grass on the west side of the channel have been good areas, these areas haven’t been affected by the heavy rains as much as other parts of the lake. The crappie reports are starting to taper off, but the bite could still be considered fair with some crappie still being reported in the cleaner backwater areas. Target wood and/or grass for best results.
