Bream fishing has slowed somewhat, however, one angler caught over 20 every morning last week.  Another caught 19 on Sunday on crickets, while another angler did well with a fly rod.  Try redworms fished on the bottom for Redear Sunfish. 


Crappie fishing is slow.  Try minnows and jigs in 8 -10 feet of water.
