Bull Shoals is on a steady rise once again. Water release from Beaver and Table Rock lakes should keep the lake high for many weeks to come. Starting to see more debris floating, but overall, the lake is relatively clear today. The elevation of the lake has made for some very good bass and walleye fishing! Work the flooded brush with a spinner bait or top water. The boat launch is now 13 ft under water. Lets all pray for the rain to stop for a while.
Water Level – 673 and rising
Water Temp – 70 degrees
Water is Clear
Black Bass – Good on top water plugs and buzz baits. Also good on small to medium plastics and spinner baits. Work the flooded brush sides of the lake around K Dock.
Walleye – Good on trolling medium crank baits. Big numbers are coming in every day! Also catching walleye on white spinner baits along the bluffs and flooded brush. Also good on bottom bouncing night crawlers.
Crappie – Fair on live minnows and swimming minnows. More crappie being caught while trolling the main lake with small to medium crank baits.
