Fishing has locked into the late summer pattern on the lake. Bass are holding tight to isolated cover on points and on flats near deeper water. Jigs with a craw trailer have been the bait of choice. Summer craw and green pumpkin have been favored flavors. Most are being caught at 15 to 20 feet deep.
White bass are still actively chasing shad late in the day. Jumps are not as predictable as earlier this summer. Conoloway has a good number of fish. Crappie appear to be holding on deep brush. Jigs or minnows have been the preferred baits. Most of these fish have been 12 to 15 feet deep.
The lake is right at pool, clear and 88 to 89 degrees.
Wear your PFD and take the family fishing.
