Fishing is good. The bite this week is the same as last week’s, so change nothing.

The hybrids and stripers are concentrated mid-lake from the “S” turns to Bartow Carver … and on the river channel between Kellogg Creek and Victoria.

Early in the morning, flatlines and planer boards are getting hammered. Trout and shad seem to be working equally well. The downline bite should also produce anywhere from 18-35 feet. The best bite right now is on U-rigs, once the sun gets up.

My clients have been catching very good numbers on a U-rig pulled 80-100 feet behind the boat with chartreuse jigs and trailers. Pull the edges of the river and creek channels and expect bites when you start marking the huge clouds of baitfish. Also, be sure to keep something tied on for the schooling fish. When you see gulls diving, you’ll find hybrids and stripers pushing bait up. I like to fish this schooling action fish with a white Rooster Tail, fluke or Spook.
