GOOD. Water lightly stained; 83-85 degrees; 0.39 low. Largemouth bass are good on blue plastic worms, bladed jigs and crankbaits near drop-offs,windy points, grass lines, and humps in 8-22’. Topwater plugs and plastic frogs are productive early in grass patches and lily pads. White and yellow bass are good in deeper water of main lake points, flats, and humps. Crappie are excellent on jigs and minnows in 18-25’ in brush piles and standing timber. Catfish are good on cut bait and live bait in 10-20’.
