Reservoir Conditions: Summer normal elevation: 682.0 feet. Winter normal elevation: 676.0 feet. Current elevation: 681.0 feet. The water surface temperature is 62 degrees. Largemouth Bass: Grass mats and grass edges along large flats seem to be better than other areas. Frogs, buzzbaits, plastic worms and spinnerbaits are being used. Smallmouth Bass: Tailwater anglers are catching a few along the riprap banks and humps. Crappie: Bluffwalls and docks are the top visited locations by crappie anglers. Jigs are being used by most anglers. Striped Bass: Shad is the best bait. Jigs, swimbaits, and spoons are also being used in the tailwaters. Some days are better than others. Bluegill: Many are being caught around docks, near bluffs and in open water while drifting in the upper reservoir. Worms are the better bait. Catfish: Bait selection normally determines the odds of catching a big fish. Shad is the best bait. Several are being caught while drifting in the main channel.

The current elevation is 681.3 feet. Last week the elevation was 681.6 feet. This is lower summer elevation. The trend is now for the lake to head to lower levels. Water temperature is in the upper 70's. Bass:Fair. Most anglers are not catching fish. A weekend tournament with over 100 boats came out of Dayton Boat Dock and the Friday, Saturday total averaged just over 15 pounds per day. Flipping into the grass mats or casting rats and frogs across the same are the techniques that are being used. Big water flats are the best area. Crappie:Slow. Blowdowns on steep banks and docks are being targeted with minnows or jigs. Bluegill:Good. Most drifters in the upper reservoir main channel are catching a lot of bluegill. Several shellcrackers are in the mix. Crickets and worms are the bait. Catfish: Good. Meaty baits are being used. Drifting the main channel should be the target area. Striped Bass:Slow for most anglers. Those that are catching a few are using shad for bait.
