Mississippi River stage at Greenville is at 20 ft and will begin a moderate rise for the next several days.
Bream are still biting very good. Several anglers have reported great catches for bream lately. Try using crickets or red worms for bait and fishing around stumps, the rip rap bank on the north eastern shoreline, or other structure.
White bass should be chasing schools of shad. Try tossing a shad like crankbait in the middle of a school of shad and get ready for some excitement. Getting into the white bass can be some of the most exiting fishing this time of year.
Catfish fishing is usually decent this time of year on Ferguson. Trotlines and jugs baited with cut bait, red weenies, or nightcrawlers are all good bets.
