Stripers are biting well on live shad. Fishing is good from Nutbush Creek to Palmers Point, and from the mouth of Eastland Creek to Butchers Creek. The stripers appear to be moving up the lake, starting their spawning runs into the Dan and Staunton Rivers.
Largemouth bass are taking spinnerbaits, Speed Shads and plastic grubs in the shallows, around rip rap and rocky points. Anglers fishing spinnerbaits adjacent to buckbrush, are taking good sized bass.
Crappie are in the process of spawning, with brushpiles being full of hand-sized crappies. Fish small minnows or jigs, 9-10 feet deep, over brushpiles. Stripers are being caught below Kerr dam, when the Corps is generating.
Catfish are suckers for chicken livers or cut shad.
