Lake Level: 171.94 ft, (172 ft high pool) Clarity: Muddy to stained on the North End clearing further south Temp: mid to upper 40s, water is starting to gradually warm. The lake is at high pool and a lot of fresh water still coming into the lake. The Black Bass are holding in deep water with the water temp ranging in the 40s. Spoons, jigs and deep diving crank baits working best. Look for balls of shad on your depth finder in 20 plus foot of water. As the water temp starts warming to the 50s, jigs, tubes, soft plastics, traps, crank baits, and spinner baits will become more productive as the fish will start moving up with the rising water and staging off the points, creek bends and flooded brush leading to the backs of the coves and creeks. The White Bass fishing has been difficult because of the fast running water in the river. When the river stabilizes, concentrate on the sand bars, and flooded sloughs with live Crawfish, Rinky Dink tail spinners, road runners and slab spoons. The Crappie are holding in 25 plus foot of water over brush. Shiners and jigs working best.
