  7. Details: 156 in. Largemouth Bass with a floating

  8. As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation was 407.51 feet msl (flood pool – 408 msl).
    Local angler George Graves said surface water ...more temperature is in around 70 degrees and the lake is clear throughout. Bass fishing remains very good with lots of small and slot fish. Look for fish in the spawning coves up shallow between Arlie Moore and Cox Creek. Throw a lipped or lipless crank bait across secondary points and close to shoreline brush. Anything in a natural shad pattern will work. Try a squarebill if the cover is pretty thick. Some bigger fish reported coming on white/chartreuse spinnerbaits. Also try a Texas-rigged 6-inch worm in green pumpkin or red shad across the same points but a little deeper. A lot of spotted bass are coming from the bluff banks at points 14 and 15, also along the West side of Goat Island. Try a Texas-rigged finesse 4-inch worm fished down the rocky banks. Crappie fishing remains slow with only a few fish coming from the south side between the mouth of Brushy and Iron Mountain. Throw a 2-inch tube or curly tail grub on a 1/16-ounce jig head to any exposed cover in 3 to 5 feet of water. Hybrid fishing is fair at best with the fish scattered between Shouse Ford and Cox Creek. There's very little schooling activity, so trolling is the best bet. The best trolling lures are crankbaits such as Shad Raps, 4-inch swim baits, Roostertails, heavy spoons and 5-arm umbrella rigs loaded with 4-inch curly tail grubs. Get the lures about 10 to 12 feet down on a long line of at least 100 feet. Best colors for all rigs are white and chartreuse. Quite a few white bass showing as well. Quite a few catfish are showing up on trotlines set across points at about 20 feet deep. Bait with cut shad, chicken livers, nightcrawlers, Catfish Charlie or hot dogs. Also try big minnows and small live bream. Brushy Creek has been one of the more productive areas.

      Nice grass carp
  10. As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation was 409.22 feet msl (flood pool – 408 msl).
    Local angler George Graves said the surface ...more water temperature is in the low 60s and the lake is clear up to Point 14 and lightly stained upriver. Fishing is getting better as the water slowly warms and the spawn begins. Bass fishing is very good with plenty of double-digit catches reported. However most of the fish are in the slot, (13 to 16 inches), and have to be released. The fish are now spawning, so the best action will be in the spawning coves and up shallow. With the water level up, work the flooded brush on secondary points. The best pattern has been crankbaits (both lipped and lipless), spinnerbaits and Alabama rigs loaded with 4-inch swim baits. The upper end of the lake between Arlie Moore and Cox Creek is still the best area. Some other productive areas have been the north bank between Point Cedar and Shouse Ford, Beaton Creek, Woodall Cove and the north side of Goat Island. A few reports of crappie catches are starting to trickle in now that the fish are in full spawn. Best pattern has been along shoreline brush in the big coves. Use a float and live minnow or a 2-inch curly tail grub in Tennessee shad. Morning and evening are the best times for shallow crappies because they move to deeper water during the bright part of the day. Mid-lake is best right now, with Brushy Creek one of the better areas. Hybrid fishing is good between Cox Creek and Amity. The best bet is trolling in the river until the school is located. Crankbaits, such as No. 7 Rapalas, 4-inch swim baits and 3-inch curly tail grubs have been best. Some fish are starting to return to the main lake around Shouse Ford. This area should get red hot in the next few weeks. Catfishing has been fair on trotlines set in the upper lake between Shouse Ford and Point Cedar. Best areas to set the lines have been on shallow points and humps in 15 to 20 feet of water. Bait with cut shad, Catfish Charlie, nightcrawlers and hot dogs.
