Some bass may still be shallow while others have moved to open water off deep points. Try fishing the north end around vegetation using spinner baits, different colored deep diving crank baits and soft plastic worms.
Some bream can be caught off points in depths between 4 - 8 feet, while others are still in shallow waters foraging for food. Try fishing near structure in shallow coves using crickets and worms.
Crappie fishing has been fair. These fish are being caught along the creek channels in the north end around the grass lines in medium to deep water. Try fishing these areas using minnows and jigs.
Tight-lining on the bottom in creek channels with liver, worms or blood baits should be the best method for harvesting catfish this time of year. The time for noodling or hand grabbing catfish has started. The season opened May 1 and ends on July 15.
