The Lake held near 17 percent of capacity

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

The Lake held near 17 percent of capacity, and fishing has switched gears. Anglers reported a slower bite with bass holding in deeper water. Drop shot, Ned rigs, and Neko rigs scored fish in 15 to 30 feet of water with Ox Blood, Hologram Shad, and Green Pumpkin as the favored colors. Deep diving crankbaits and jigs also connected. White bass fell for trolled spoons, in-line spinners, and white swimbaits. Catfish went for nightcrawlers, chicken liver, and cut mackerel.
