TIPS & TACTICS
Low water levels and turbid water can make fishing a challenge. Water levels can and do fluctuate dramatically. Anglers should focus on the cover and structure available in the lower reservoir near the dam and power plant. Spring and summer are the best times of year for largemouth bass. Focus attention on bulrush or cattail points with soft plastics or flipping jigs when the lake is up. In low water conditions, concentrate on stumps and rocks with crankbaits or spinnerbaits. Spinnerbaits and suspending baits are good options for summer and topwater lures are good early and late in the day. Diving baits that have a lot of action and bump the bottom will attract strikes when visibility is poor. Crappie are abundant in the reservoir. Locate structure such as old trees or rock drop-offs or humps, then vertically fish jigs or minnows as close to the structure as possible.
FISHING REPORT
