Water Temperature: 82-85 degrees Water Clarity: Clear Lake Level: 571.52 FISH REPORT Black bass are very good. Top water action is still good with Zara Spooks, Chuggers and Pop-R's. Walleye are still very good. C.C. spoons jigged vertically are the best method for these fish. Trolling crank baits near main lake points and structure is a good technique right now. Stripers are fair on live bait and jigging spoons. Try main lake points and humps. Bream are good and being caught around brush in the 15-25' range near brush. Crappie are good and being caught near brush with minnows or crappie jigs. These fish are being caught 15-20 feet deep. Catfish are good and being caught on rod and reel fished in big bays and major creek basins.

Todd Gadberry at Mountain Harbor Resort said the water is 82 to 85 degrees and is clear. Black bass are biting very well on Zara Spooks, Chug Bugs and Pop-R’s. Walleye are still very good on C.C. Spoons jigged vertically or crankbaits trolled near main lake points and structure. Stripers are fair on live bait and jigging spoons around main lake points and humps. Bream are biting well around brush in the 15- to 25-foot range. Crappie are good and being caught near brush on minnows or crappie jigs fished 15- to 20-feet deep. Catfish are good and being caught on rod-and-reel fished in big bays and major creek basins. Trader Bill's Outdoor Sports in Hot Springs said the surface water temperature is in the 80s and the water level is 5 feet below full pool and falling. Black bass are being caught on topwater lures along timberlines in creek channel swings. Try a Spook or any other walking-type topwater lure. many people also are catching bass in 12 to 16 feet of water on Texas-rigged or jighead worms. Bream are still biting on the bottom in 5 to 8 feet of water near the guts of small pockets.
