Bluegill - Good: Bluegill fishing continues to pick up but the bluegills don't seem to want to leave those rock piles just yet.
Channel Catfish - Good: Catfishing picked up a little bit this last week. Still in the culvert piles near shore. Chicken liver is their favorite food at Lake Darling.
Largemouth Bass - Fair: Bass fishing is picking up as they start working the shoreline rip rap looking for small green sunfish and crawdads. After 5pm is when the bite picks up. Deep water during the rest of the day.
Water temperature is back into the upper 70's. But a hot weather weekend as forecasted will take it back into the low 80's.
