Bass bite is fair right now early in the mornings and late evenings.  They have been biting best on black or dark colored plastics fished deep near structure.  


Bream bite is excellent in deeper water using redworms.  Several Shell Crackers were caught this week in deeper water along the dam.



Crappie bite picked up this week, the most successful anglers have landed them in 10'-12' of water on fathead minnows.




Catfish are biting moderately in deep water on livers fished on the bottom.  Recently one angler caught a 20 pound catfish!
