- May 12, 2021
- EXCELLENT. Water clear; 72 degrees; 5.20 feet low. Striper fishing is excellent along the river channel edge with live bait and swimbaits with some topwater action in shallow water early in the day. White bass are excellent with swimbaits, silver spoons, and slabs. Look for birds diving over feeding schools. Largemouth bass are good with topwaters, crankbaits, Texas-rigged plastic worms in dark colors, and spinners in water ranging from 2-12 feet in depth. Smallmouth bass are good on plastic grubs, curl tails, and small diving crankbaits along rock ledges and rocky shorelines. Catfish are excellent with chicken liver, prepared baits, and cut bait in water depths less than 10 feet. Crappie are excellent with live minnows in the marinas and brush piles.
