Both the bass and crappie bite could be considered good. The
trick to both the bass and crappie is to find some clean water.
Coalfire and Rivermont areas on the lower end of the lake are best
areas where clearer water can be found. For bass, swimming jigs,
t-rigged lizards and senkos are also producing some bass as they
start to move into post-spawn patterns. For those fish guarding
fry, try throwing swimbaits and weightless senkos. Also, look for
the frog bite to be picking up soon as well. The crappie anglers
are fishing both shallow and deep and catching fish. Trolling jigs
and minnows in the old river runs and also along Coalfire Creek is
producing good numbers of crappie. The shallow bite has been Camp
Pratt and other old river and creek runs. Crappie have been coming
out of 2 - 4 ft of water with both minnows and jigs catching fish.
Catfish are biting below Columbus dam and in the Nashville Ferry
area. Cut-shad and nightcrawlers are catching the most fish.
Shallow bars right next to the channel are the best
