Mississippi River stage at Greenville is at 32 ft. and falling.
Bass fishing has picked up some. Try fishing around the piers on the north end or along the riprap on the eastern banks. Some anglers are having success fishing for white bass that have started schooling.
Catfish fishing is usually great this time of year on Ferguson. Trotlines and jugs baited with cut bait, chicken livers, or nightcrawlers are all good bets. Anglers have been having some good luck around the grain elevator.
Bass can be caught better at night or early morning this time of year. Try fishing a deep diving crankbait along the rip rap on the north eastern shoreline of the lake, or try flipping soft plastics around the fishing piers. Using swim baits or spinerbaits around inflowing creeks is also a great way to catch bass at Ferguson.
Bream:Try finding beds in shallow water areas with with a rocky bottom or around submerged stumps or logs and use crickets or red worms for bait. This can be lots of fun for even inexperienced anglers and is a great way to introduce kids to fishing.
