Water temps are now in the low to mid 80’s. Most of the fishing reports are fair again this week. For bass, anglers are hitting the creek channel and other forms of offshore structure with big worms and jigs during the day. During the twilight hours, anglers are throwing frogs and buzzbaits along some of the shallow grass with some success. The bream anglers are targeting drop offs just out from traditional bedding areas. Crickets are catching most of the fish, but tight-lining wigglers seems to be catching bigger fish. The crappie bite is fair with most anglers fishing and trolling in deeper water around brushtops and along the dam. Both minnows and jigs are catching fish. The catfish bite is fair to good during the evening hours. Anglers are targeting the hump and creek channel just out from the boat ramp with live bait fished on a tight line.
One local angler caught to trophy flathead said to be around 30 pounds.
A young angler shows off a nice largemouth.
