Fishing is excellent unless its very hot mid day. Early morning and late evening top water ploppers and frogs are doing great. Mid day go down deep with live worms or dark plastics. Glowing nightcrawlers from the store are pulling some really nice bass and bluegill in. Cat fishing is off and running if you feel like casting a line and taking a seat. Weather will be hot this week so come out early or after work for best results. Crappie are big when you find on the wya up from about 20 feet down.
