The weather is hot and so is the fishing!
¼ oz white or white chartreuse buzzbaits & weedless frogs will be a good producer around the pads and grass the first hour after daybreak and middle of the day. On the main river, chartreuse blue back or firetiger colored will be a good producer along the rock jetties. Concentrate on the inside of the rocks. If you enjoy fishing Texas rigged plastics, watermelon or black red flake creature baits rigged with a ¼ oz. Tungsten worm weights fished around the grass beds will be a sure bet. Best depths are going to be around 6 to 10 foot.
Shiners and small crappie jigs tipped with shiners fished along the edge of the ridges in the oxbows should be a good bet on the Crappie. Seven to 12 feet of water with standing timber should be a good place to start.

Ended up keeping 14 fish between two people. Not too bad for only fishing a couple hours and jumping between sets of rocks. When heading upriver the rocks on the left side of the river seemed to be the best. There was very little current the day we went. The largest fish I would say was between 5.5 or 6 lbs. All fish were at least a pound and a half.
