Bass fishing is good; the bass are on the beds. Flukes and large soft plastic worms and lizards are all getting bites. 


Bream fishing is fair, but should pick up as they begin to spawn.  Try crickets and nightcrawlers under a cork.


Crappie fishing has picked up.  Minnows are best in 6 to 8 feet of water.


The catfish bite is fair; try tightlining with minnows, worms, or your catfish bait of choice.  Previous sampling showed a healthy catfish population at Calling Panther.
