Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Anglers report good fishing. Try using worms or artificial baits, flies, brightly colored spoons or crankbaits. When you're bottom fishing, try using a marshmallow or floating bait to lift your bait roughly 18 to 24 inches off the bottom. This will keep your bait or lure above of the mud and the weeds where it will be easier for fish to find. The changing weather has led to some good daytime fishing, but the nights are getting colder. The boat launch is mostly mud, which is making it difficult to launch without a 4x4 with good mud tires.
