Some bass are starting to move towards the shallows while others are still being caught within channels and off points. As bass begin to spawn try working soft plastic lures slowly.
Fishing along the dam in water of about 6 - 10 ft with crickets and worm may produce some success.
The water has been drawn down and crappie are being caught in 4 - 6 ft of water on jigs or minnows. Several nice catches have been reported.
