Bluegill - Good: Bluegill fishing remains pretty decent. Not in real shallow but you can find the out in 4 to 5 foot of water.

Channel Catfish - Fair: The catfish should soon be looking to start their fall feeding rush.

Largemouth Bass - Good: The water warmed back up some but not enough to slow the bass fishing back down. With plenty of steep banks it's not hard finding the edges of the deep water habitat.

The water temperature is still holding onto near 80 degrees. Algae and duckweed starting to thin out a little with the approaching fall.

Bluegill - Good: Bluegill fishing is picking up a little the last few days with cooler weather. Not in real shallow but you can find the out in 4 to 5 foot of water.

Channel Catfish - Fair: The catfishing is picking up with the falling water temps. Still work start with slow drift/trolling cutbait along the face of the dam and around the jetties.

Largemouth Bass - Good: Cooler weather is making the bass a little more active. Still early and late in the day seems to be the best times.

The water temperature has dropped back into the mid 70's. The thermocline remains at 5-7 feet deep. Don't bother fishing much below that. Little to no oxygen below that 7 foot mark.
