GOOD. Water lightly stained; 73 degrees; 3.47 low. Striped bass and white bass are good on live shad, swimbaits, and slabs.

Largemouth bass are fair fishing Texas-rigged plastic worms, jigs, and diving crankbaits in 16-28’ with some fish moving into shallow water in the 3-10’ range. Crappie are fair on minnows near boathouses, timber and brush piles in 15-25’. Catfish are excellent on cut bait and punch bait.
