 Recent Activity and Conditions


The recent warm days have been welcomed.  The lake is stained to muddy, falling fast and in the upper 40's.  Most fish have been 20 to 25 feet deep and holding on rock near the river channel.  A jig/craw or jig/chunk combination has been successful.  Trailers with a subtle action were getting the most bites.  A chigger craw or zoom chunk were good.  Green pumpkin was the  preferred flavor.  A trd fished vertically caught some fish.  Position the boat over the fish and drop the bait in their face using your electronics.  Bites are subtle.  Nothing more than added weight or your line goes slack.

Be aware of hypothermia when on the water.  Don't go out alone.
