EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 70 degrees; 1.91 feet high. Black bass are good on topwaters, crankbaits, Texas-rigged plastic worms, and skirted jigs. White bass are excellent along the main lake channel, flats, and humps with jigging spoons and slabs. Stripers are good with live bait along the main lake river channel edges in water depths 20-35 feet. Crappie are excellent with minnows and jigs in timber, creek channels, and brush piles.
