General Comments
No reports. With the warm temperatures, fishing should be getting better each day. Try for crappie by using minnows around submerged logs and tree stumps on the northeast flat and along the dam. Largemouth bass are about 3 weeks from spawning and could be taken on a variety of baits. Wiper's should be on the windy banks and points, try spoons and shallow running crankbaits or topwater baits. Channel catfish should begin to bite on standard baits like worms, liver and prepared baits.
