Bass fishing is picking up, with best fishing on the points and in the buck brush, using plastic worms. Bass are burrowed deep in the bushes. Topwater baits or rapidly retrieved spinnerbaits are best early and late in the day. After the sun rises, pitch or cast grubs and plastic worms with 1/16 ounce weights past bushes, swim the lure back towards the bush and let it drop.
Crappie fishing is excellent.
Catfish are still hitting well on cut bait.
Stripers may be had by trolling bucktails and Redfins, and by freelining live shad. Fishing is best at night and in the early morning hours between Bluestone Creek and Goat Island.
A few white bass are being caught by crappie anglers.
