Clarity of water: The water is clear around the Marina and the farther you go to the Dam the better the water clarity will get.

WHAT BAIT TO USE!!
 
Stripers- Anchovies and Sardines.
 
 
Catfish- Chicken Liver, Anchovies, Sardines and Night Crawlers. Catfish tend to not be interested in any lures.
 
 
Trout- Power bait, Worms, have been working well. Trout also love lures such as Panther Martins, Kastmaster, Roster Tails, and all types of small Spinners. But as of right now trout are slowing down a lot due to the warm water.
 
 
Largemouth/ Smallmouth- Plastic Worms have been a good choice, another good choice is Jigs or Drop Shots.
 
 
Crappie/Panfish- Night Crawlers, Redworms, and little Micro Jigs have been working good as well.
