Bluegill - Slow: The cooler weather should start to get the bluegills more active. I would still be working those brushpiles in 6 to 7 foot of water.

Largemouth Bass - Slow: Work out in a little deeper water back in the flooded timber in the bays.

Pretty quiet out on the lake with all the rain this week.

Bluegill - Slow: Hot weather this week has kept the bluegill fishing at a slow pace. I would still be working those brushpiles in 6 to 7 foot of water.

Largemouth Bass - Slow: Work out in a little deeper water back in the flooded timber in the bays.

Water temperatures are hanging out in the mid 80's. Need some rain or a good wind to thin the duckweed down some.

Bluegill - Slow: With the return of warm stagnant weather the bluegill bite has slowed down. I would still be working those brushpiles in 6 to 7 foot of water.

Channel Catfish - Fair: The face of the dam is always good. Also try back in the main two bays at the very upper end of the lake around the brush piles and downed trees.

Largemouth Bass - Slow: Work out in a little deeper water back in the flooded timber in the bays.

Water temperature was 84 degrees at noon on Wednesday (8/19). Water clarity is improving. Duckweed has really taken over in parts of the lake especially in the boat ramp bay.

The cooler nights have lowered the water temperature down into the upper 70's, at least for a few days. Water clarity still isn't the best since that last big rain. A lot of the duckweed got washed out of the lake.

Bluegill - Fair: Thursday morning (8/7) some of the bluegills were in shallow. I would probably still work the brush piles in that 6 foot deep water, as usual. Worm and bobber or a small jig tipped with live bait jigged vertically.

Largemouth Bass - Fair: Soft plastics rigged weedless tossed back into the flooded timber. See just how far back into the trees you can get your boat.

Channel Catfish - Fair: Maybe close to good. Work the shallows back in some of the bays where the deeper gullies drain into the lake.

For more information on the above lakes and rivers call the Lake Darling Fisheries Office at (319) 694-2430.

Bluegill - Fair: Most of the bluegills moved back out into the deeper 6 to 8 foot deep structure. Might still be able to pick up a few in the shallows in the shady bays.

Largemouth Bass - Fair: Soft plastics rigged weedless tossed back into the flooded timber. See just how far back into the trees you can get your boat.

Water temp back up into the low 80's. Water still pretty dirty but improving.
