The lake level and surface temperature continues to fall, fast. Cool nights have lowered the surface temp to around 67 degrees. Elevation is about 5 feet below summer pool and falling fast.
Bass are shallow and taking small spinners and crankbaits off gravel and chunk rock banks. Mud flats have been productive when you find a ditch. A Buzz'n Speed Shad has been good on top.
A tip for the week is to go small in fall. Crappie are scattered and taking minnows in 10 to 15 feet of water.
Wear your PFD and take the family fishing.
