The lake level is at 301 and falling.

Fishing is fair to good for anglers who are patient.

Crappie anglers are loading coolers with 1-3 pound fish, using small minnows over brushpiles and around bridge pilings.

Bass may be taken in shallow water, holding on rockpiles or around buck brush in backs of pockets. They may also be found holding on points or wood cover in 4-6 feet of water, and on humps, road beds and ledges, in 10-14 feet of water, near dropoffs into river or creek channels. Depending on depth, most productive lures are slowly retrieved crankbaits, plastic grubs or spider jigs, jig ‘n pig and jigging spoons.

Stripers are active, hitting Sassy Shads on 1/4 ounce jig heads, fished under the schools of shad minnows, close to the shoreline.
