Line-sides fishing is Fair at best!!
The lake is stained from Little River all the way to the dam. The water is pretty clear from the dam south to Clarks Creek.
Finding fish is easy right now, but getting them to bite with any constantly is another story. The better bite this week has come between the dam and Bethany Bridge. There is also a bite from the Block House to Clarks Creek. But both bites are fair at best.
Down-lining shad and small trout seem to working equally as well. Most of the bigger schools are between 22-50 deep.
If we could go two weeks without rain I think our bite will get great. The water temps are really good for this time of year. If we don’t see a big prolonged arctic blast, I think we will avoid a shad kill again this year. This will make netting bait easier this spring, but fishing maybe a little harder.
Trolling is still slow but is getting better. The best times seems to be midday. I have been pulling my rigs at 2.4 – 3.3 MPH about 100 feet behind the boat. The trolling bite is just around the corner. I really think once the lake clears the trolling bite will get as good as the live bait bite.
The topwater bite was close to breaking loose before we got all the rain. I look for it to return as the lake starts to clear.
