Bluegill - Good: Bluegills are trying to head to shallow water but seem to be hung up at those 4-6 foot depths.

Largemouth Bass - Good: Bass fishing is starting to pick back up a little. They seem to be moving in to mid depth ( 5-6 ft) with an occasional trip into shallower water.

Water temperature is stuck in the upper 70's yet; this weekend won't help much with that. Water clarity is around 24 inches due to some heavy rains early last week.

Channel Catfish - Fair: It's about time for them to be looking to fatten up for the fall and winter. Chicken liver and cut bait are goods places to start for bait. Fish above 8 foot deep.

Bluegill - Fair: The bluegills seem to be remaining out deep but should start to move in shallower with the cooler temps.

Channel Catfish - Fair: They didn't mind the heat but a little cooler is nice too. Chicken liver and cut bait are goods places to start for bait. Fish above 8 foot deep.

Largemouth Bass - Fair: Water temperature dropping should make the bass more active but still deep for a little while longer. Very early or just before dark. Slow drift/troll crankbaits down between 6 and 7 feet below the surface to locate them.

Water temp in the upper 70's Thermocline set up at between 6 and 7 feet. Water clarity remains at about 36 inches.
