Fishing Report (Week of 02/18/18)
Water Temp: 66°
Most fishing is picking up in shallow waters as the temperatures rise. Bedding activity is beginning with Bass, Crappie and Bream around the lake.
Largemouth bass can be caught in shallow areas near structure. Try soft plastics, jigs and night crawlers.
Crappie can be caught around structure in 5 to 7 feet of water on minnow-tipped jigs. Slow trolling small crankbaits or minnows can also be effective.
Fish for bream in 5 to 10 feet of water on crickets and worms fished on the bottom.
Catfish can be caught with worms or livers fished on the bottom in the old creek channels.
