Outflow: 8 cfs
Water Temp: 51 degrees
The fish are getting shallower! I’ve heard of a lot of fish being caught in inches to a few feet of water. Jigs and minnows both are working well. The north end of the lake has a shallower bite going on but I have heard of some fish being caught in 2’-4’ around the bridges as well as the marinas.
The bass fishing is picking up. Some good fish are being caught shallow around stumps near a channel swing on jigs and beaver style soft plastics. Jerk baits are working on main lake and secondary points. A little breeze helps that bite. Some wiggle wart fish are being caught as well. Spinnerbaits are working in the same areas when a little wind is hitting the bank.
I don’t have a good update on the walleye bite. Still reports of fish being caught on the dam using jerkbaits, flikr shads, and shad raps.
The channel cats are biting pretty good. Flats near deeper water seem to be producing the best. Minnows, night crawlers, cut bait, and stink bait are all working well.
