The catfish bite is picking up. The best bait to use has been mackerel, chicken livers, anchovies and sardines.


The water temperature is still warm, so the trout have been staying in the deeper water. Anglers are having some success early in the morning using on rapalas, night crawlers, Kastmasters, and chartreuse Power Bait.
