Bass fishing has been good. Bass can be caught in shallow water. Try using soft plastic lures or fish imitating swimbaits. Spinnerbaits may work well for bass that are in post spawn. 



Bream fishing has been good. Fish for bream in and around shallow structure. Use crickets or small red worms to catch these fish.



Crappie fishing has been good lately. A few anglers have been catching a some crappie in shallow water, but most are still deep along the creek channel. Use jigs or minnows to catch these fish.   



Fishing for catfish has been good lately. Try using earthworms or cut bait fished on the bottom. The creek along the nature trail may produce some strikes.
