Water Temperature: Low of 51°F, High of 60°F
Water Elevation: 358.5’ (359 Summer Pool)
Water Clarity: 4’ to 5’ visibility – Green Stain

The Bass are starting to spawn and the Crappie are into the later stages of their spawn.

Notes on Action: Those large fish spawn first and I’ve been seeing some large fish on beds.
What to Use: Spinner baits, Carolina and Texas rigged soft plastics are a main stay this time of year. Green pumpkin is always a good color.
Where to Fish: Sheltered pockets in large bays have bedding fish in them now. Carolina rigging deeper banks 8’ to 12’ leading into larger creek arms will give good action. Rip-rap rock is good right now.

Notes on Action: The Black Crappie are in their later stages of spawning and the White Crappie are ”HOT”.
What to Use: White, chartreuse, and green curly tails fished on 1/16 to 1/8 oz jigs are producing as well as minnows.
Where to Fish: 4’ to 6’ deep on banks and 12’ to 20’ deep on ledges.

Notes on Action: With the warmer temps, I’ve noticed an increase in fish shallow but the big schools are still deeper.
What to Use: Night crawlers or small jigs tipped with a wax worm will get them.
Where to Fish: 3’ to 4’ deep in the backs of deeper pockets, rocky points, and ledges 15’ to 20’ deep are productive.
