    4. I was out there two weekends ago and it was ungodly high. Graphed a bunch of crappie in about 15-18ft of water. Caught two that were about 11inches long. Got way ...more back in the creek channel east of cutright and caught a 18.75inch bass. Probably pushing 5 pounds. It was slow but they're still eating. Crappie were on a 4 inch swim bait and the bass was on a 1/2Oz shad colored spinnerbait. Water clarity was better than expected
