The lake level was about 6 inches above the top of the dam and the water was stained but not muddy.
A few scattered crappie were around the main lake channels and mid-depth flats. Some catfish were in the deep holes. Some nice yellow perch were scattered on the mid-depth flats in the main lake and the major creeks. A few crappie and some nice pickerel and bass were in the major creeks. Wright Bait Co. two inch curly tail grubs, suspending jerk baits, and live minnows have been the most effective baits. Fishing with Capt.
