Temperature: 89°     Visibility: 36"


Bass bite is fair in 6' of water or less on soft plastics, lures of choice are Junebug, Black, Junebug Red and Watermelon Seed colors.  Bass bite is slow with the increased water termperatures, so focus fishing efforts on schooling fish or near shallow vegetation edges.


Bream are holding around lilies in the back of the lake, try fishing with live crickets or redworms around the edges of the vegetation or near structure.   


Crappie bite is slow, but bite is best around deep structure on jigs in natural colors.


Catfish are starting to bite from piers and in the channel on liver.
