Bass fishing is slow, a few small ones have been caught; try soft plastics Texas rigged, or suspending jerkbaits.
Harvest of small bass is encouraged at this lake.
Bream fishing has been slow; one angler caught a few while tightlining with worms.
If you haven't heard yet, a 54 pound channel catfish was caught at Mary Crawford a week to 10 days ago. Try tightlining with worms or livers.
Crappie fishing has been slow as well. Minnows and jigs fished deep would be the best bet.
