Slightly higher elevation than mid normal elevation. Water temperature is in the low 80’s. Bass:Fair. Most anglers are struggling. As always a few anglers are catching some good stringers. Large water matted grass is the most popular type of area. Plastic worms and topwater weedless baits used across the surface of the grass is the technique. Crappie:Fair. Mostly night anglers using minnows near lights are catching a few. 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:Meaty baits used in the main channel is a combination that is being used by anglers to catch a lot of catfish. The bigger the bait, the greater the reward. Striped bass:Shad used in the tailwaters are being used by a few anglers to catch a lot of fish at times.
