The lake rose to 90 percent of capacity, and fishing has been good

by Chad Burton and Chris Borden

The lake rose to 90 percent of capacity, and fishing has been good. Reaction bait anglers found biters near submerged vegetation and along rocky shorelines while throwing crankbaits and jerkbaits. Bass also took drop shot and Carolina rigs with 6 inch plastic worms in green pumpkin, Aarons Magic, and baby bass working well. Crappie anglers found biting fish holding over submerged bushes and rockpiles. They bit small live minnows and swimbaits. Catfish anglers found fish in deeper coves, and they were biting garlic nightcrawlers and cut baits.
