With the water level at 304 and falling, bass are taking plastic baits, small spinnerbaits and jerkbaits, fished in the buckbrush and willows. Bass are also found in 3-7 feet of water in stumps and rocks. Live shad, bucktails and Redfins are taking stripers between Buoys 6-14.

Striper fishing is red hot around the bridges at Clarksville. Some stripers to 16 pounds are being taken below Kerr Dam, along with some white perch.

Crappie anglers are doing well with live minnows over submerged brush and around bridge pilings, 12-15 feet deep.

An archive of fishing reports is available here.
