The water is finally starting to drop! Of course, we are still 32 feet above normal for this time of the year. Recent heat waves have pushed the surface temp over the 90 degree mark. Look for fish much deeper due to the hot water temps and the very clear water. Right now is a great time to get the family out for some good old bobber fishing for huge bluegill and sun fish! They are really feeding on the water bugs skimming the surface of every cove. K Dock and upstream still has debris both mornings and evenings, but all clear down stream towards AR.
Water Level – 691.5
Water Temp 88 – 92 degrees
Water is Clear
Bluegill/Sunfish – Very Good on small pieces of worms or crickets in the coves.
Black Bass – Good on top water early. Also good on jigs, Carolina rigs and weedless plastics on road beads and parking lots.
Walleye – Fair on night crawlers. Should be able to troll with deep diving crank baits down stream from K Dock.
Crappie – Slow and scattered.
