Bluegill - Fair: the Bluegills seem to still be out in the 6-8 foot zone. They seem to be working their way deeper now.

The water temperature has hit the mid 50's again, at least for a little wile. But the fish don't seem to be fooled and are staying outt in the deeper water.

Black Crappie - Fair: Try working the old creek channel down through the trees. It's kind of hit or miss but some anglers are catching them there. Mostly vertically jigging and moving spot to spot. Slow trolling through here just doesn't work very well, too many trees for that.

Bluegill - Fair: the Bluegills seem to still be out in the 6-8 foot zone but If you don't find them there expect them to have moved out to deeper water for the winter.

Water temperature down into the upper 40's might go up a little bit for the next couple of days before going back down.

Bluegill - Fair: Out in 5-6 foot of water in the brush also try around the island down the lake downhill from the campground area.

Would think with the cool night the water temperature won't still be stuck at 64 but it is. Still plenty of duckweed.

Water temperature is dropping fast the last few days. was in the 80's just last week. down into the mid 60's now.

Bluegill - Fair: Look for them to move into shallower water as they get used to the cooler temps.

Bluegill - Fair: Fishing pressure was pretty minimal the first part of this week. And the water will take a while to cool off.

The water temperature Monday morning was back up to 80 degrees. The rain storms over the weekend really pushed the duckweed back into the upper end of the lake and boat ramp bay.

Bluegill - Fair: Holding pretty steady over the last couple of weeks nothing to fast but you can still catch them with a little work. You can catch bluegills with worm and bobber through the duckweed in 5 to 6 foot of water.

Water temperature mostly in that 77-79 degree range.
