Most of the action has been on topwater and reaction baits

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

Naci held at 18 percent of capacity, and fishing was good. Most of the action has been on topwater and reaction baits in the early part of the day, but a lot of smaller spotted bass took finesse presentations in 5 to 25 feet of water. Drop shot, darter heads, and Senkos all worked for the smaller grade bass. White bass have been taken on the troll and the occasional topwater lure. Catfish anglers used dip bait, cut mackerel, and chicken liver to land a good number of whisker fish.
