The lake has got over 12" of rain in a week and is on the rise and muddy. This has slowed the creek bite down some but the lower end of the lake is still on the clear side. Crappie have moved in to the coves again and are doing good on size and numbers. Bass are still a little deeper but with a few days of sunshine and they too will move in and shallower.

The river is up and muddy as they run 50,000 cfs threw the flood gates. Guys fishing from the bank say the crappie are biting but not the big ones. Bass are still holding on the rocks but are hard to find. Once you find them they will bite.
