Crappie The crappie bite is fair. Jigs/ minnows may produce a few crappie. Crappie have been caught around the lock and on brush piles in the mid lake area.
Catfish The catfish bite was fair to good. Cut/whole shad or kool-aid flavored chicken are good bait choices to try. Bouncing the bottom has been a good technique. Anglers have been catching all species of catfish around the main channel.
