TRACE STATE PARK:
Water temps are running in the mid 80s. The bass anglers are reporting a fair to good topwater bait early and late in the day around mainlake and secondary points and any available cover around those points. A few quality bass have been coming out of deep water off points and drop-offs. Most anglers are throwing crankbaits, big T-rigged worms and jigs for these fish. The bream reports are fair to good. The road bed near the old swimming area is holding a few bream right now. Tight-lining crickets and redworms in 5 ft of water seems to be the technique of choice. Other bream anglers are targeting sandy flats in 10 ft of water with tight-lined meal worms or red worms. The crappie reports are poor to fair. The few folks hitting the lake are targeting deep off shore structure or targeting the suspended schools, but neither are producing that well. The few catfish reports are coming from the day-use area and the little lake. Most are tight-lining nightcrawlers, liver or minnows.
