The lake is murky from the north end of the lake all the way to Galts Ferry. Visibility is less than two feet.
The best bite on the lake right now is mid-lake around Bartow Carver. Free-lines and planer-boards are still working best — right at sunup and then again at sundown. Once the sun comes up, switch to down-lines in the same areas.
Trolling is very slow right now. The umbrella rig bite will pick back up as the water clears.
There is also a bite starting to develop on the south end of the lake from the Dam to Iron Hill. The quality of these fish is better than what we are catching mid-lake but the numbers are better mid-lake.
Trout and shad are both working well right now.
