Lake level is at 300 and falling.

Bass fishing should be improving with the falling temperatures and stabilizing weather. Best pattern appears to be a Carolina rigged, pumpkin seed Zoom lizard or white 1/4 oz. bucktail, fished in 20-25 feet of water on main lake points. Working these baits across the middle of coves in the creeks, is also producing well.

Striper action is slow, but some fish are feeding on the surface near Clarksville.

Crappie anglers are catching lots of fish along the Route 58 bridge at Clarksville and over brushpiles in 12-18 feet of water in Rudd’s Creek. Live minnows and white/pink jigs are the baits of choice.
