GOOD. Water lightly stained; 86 degrees; 1.49 low. Largemouth bass are fair with Texas-rigged plastic worms, chatter baits, skirted jigs, and deep-diving crankbaits working along brush piles, points, rock ledges, and flooded timber. Striped bass are good with live bait, jigging spoons and slabs. White bass are good on slabs when fishing deeper water in the main lake and using sonar to locate baitfish schools. Look for diving birds early or late in the day to mark feeding schools. Crappie are good on minnows in 16-28’ fishing timber and brush piles. Channel catfish have been good on prepared bait.
