What's Biting 

Largemouth bass fishing is best from late March through May.  June through the middle of July offers good bass fishing at night. Mid September through early November offers good bass fishing as well.
White bass fishing is typically good from the end of May through late June.  

Crappie fishing is typically at its best from late March through the middle of April depending upon water temperature.  June through October are good for fishing deep structure.

 Recent Activity and Conditions
Lake temps are running in the lower 60's.  The upper lake is a bit stained with the lower lake being clear.  Elevation is about 7 feet below summer pool and falling about 6 inches per day.  Bass are biting fairly well.  Medium running crankbaits have been productive along rocky main lake points.  A rat-l-trap or redeye shad is a good bet along mud flats near deeper water.  Isolated cover is key on the flats.  Jig and craw or chunks are catching fish.  Green punpkin patterns are a good flavor.  Fish appear to be holding around 10 feet.  Finding shad is a must this time of year.  It's going to be soggy this week, keep your Cabelas rain gear handy! 

Lake conditions are good for the weekend.  The upper lake is stained and the lower lake is clear.  Surface temps are around 60 degrees.  Lake elevation is about 12 feet below summer pool and falling around 6 to 8 inches per day.  Bass are moving shallow along shoreline cover.  A buzzbait is a good choice early followed by a spinnerbait later in the day.  White is a good flavor of both.  Jigs, rat-l-traps and medium running crankbaits are also good choices.  Downsizing your baits will get more bites this time of year.  It's going to be chilly this weekend.  Wear your PFD and be safe. 

Fishing has been good the last week.  The catching part has been real slow.  Bass are scattered with most activity at around 10 feet.  Finding shad has been the key to catching a few.  Buzzbaits have been a good bet early off shallow banks and pockets off the main lake.  Medium running crankbaits in a shad pattern have been good.  Smaller jigs are also good along rock banks.  Quarter ounce and 3/16 has been a good weight and green pumpkin a good flavor.  A small swimbait fished just under schools of shad has been fairly good. The lake is falling fast and about 18 feet below summer pool or about 6 feet above winter pool.  Surface temps are in the upper 50's.  Wear that PFD and be safe out there.
