Water level is at 310 and gradually falling.

Striper fishing has been good. Nutbush Creek from Buoy A-C and the main river channel between Buoy 2 and 7, have been producing nice catches, trolling white or yellow bucktails or Cordell Redfins. Live shad and jigging spoons are also taking fish.

Bass action is good, with early mornings being the best time. The fish are holding off main lake points and along the edge of the river channel. The bass are taking deep-diving crankbaits and plastic lizards.

Crappie fishing is good to excellent, on crappie jigs, small minnows and worms. Best results come from brushpiles in 8-15 feet of water and around bridge pilings, particularly the Route 58 Bridge. Blue catfish are biting well on cut bream/shad, eel and jumbo shiners. Most are being found on channel breaks in 20-30 feet of water and are in the 20-60 pound range.
