A little ice has been forming back in the bays where the sun and wind can't get to it. Warmer weather forecasted for this week should take care of it.

Bluegill - No Report: If you get the boat back out one last time try out from the south ramp along the old creek channel and use the same lures and techniques as you would ice fishing.

Black Crappie - Slow: The crappies don't seem to be moving with the warmer water temperatures. If you want them your going to have to work the face of the dam or the flooded trees out in deeper water just out from the old pond's dam.

Bluegill - Fair: The anglers out slow trolling for crappies are also catching some bluegills as they head out to deeper water.

Largemouth Bass - Fair: Most of the bass being caught in shallow water are the smaller fish. The bigger ones seem to be sticking to deeper water.

Water temperature up to 54-55 degrees in the afternoons. Water clarity at about 6 ft.

Water temperature holding on at 62 degrees. Water clarity at 3 ft.

Black Crappie - Fair: Would think with the cooler water they would be coming in shallow but they remain out in deeper water hanging around the edges of the flooded timber.

Bluegill - Fair: The bluegills also don't seem to have come in shallow yet. Work off the ends of the jetties and around the trees in 6-8 foot of water.

Water temperature going between 62 degrees in the morning to about 66 in the afternoon.

Black Crappie - Fair: As always a pre-10 am bite. Slow trolling out from the beach and along down to the dam. Not seeing to many in shallow around the rocks just yet.

Bluegill - Fair: A more stable weather pattern is helping to improve the catch rates. Trying the upper end of the lake along some of the gravel bottom areas and over top of the mounds.
