Water Level      188.38 msl
Water Temp      Upper 50’s
Water Clarity    Muddy
The constant rains have caused a major fluctuation in the lake level. Over the past week or so we have seen a little over a three foot change. The river remains very dirty. The rains up North have Lanier and West Point even higher and muddy. I talked with a buddy up there and he informed me his dock was under water and we would soon get that muddy water through here as well.
While the water was at it’s peak, the fish were tight in the new cover and punching with jigs and creature baits were doing very good. The water has been moving constantly as they regulate the excess water resulting in a good bite on the deeper ledges as the bass wait to ambush the bait fish coming by. These fish are in great shape and our spring fishing promises to be really hot. Chatter baits, noisy traps and red colored plastics are the bait of choice in this muddy water. The pumps on the refuge areas have been running, keeping the bait fish active. These areas are great for bladed jigs and ripping lipless crank baits. Watch the birds as they are feeding, the fish are pushing these bait schools up as they feed under them.
Crappie are still deep on trash piles eating minnows.
Catfish are always hungry and cut bait on jugs will keep you busy and put a great meal on the table. There’s nothing better than a mess of fresh caught river cats with the family sitting around the table.
