good. The water is a little muddy. 84 degrees; 49.88 feet below the pool. Black Bass is good in water 5-20 feet deep. The main lake and minor points have good fish. Top waters, frogs, buzzbaits, Texas rigged trick worms, Ned Riggs, and elbow baits work well.

Report by Captain Raul Cordero, Far West Guide Service. Good channel catfish. I’m starting to see more blue catfish which is good. The lake is declining about an inch per day. The depth of the fish ranges from 12 to 30 feet. Report by Captain Kent Tyrrell, 3 T’S Guide Service. Bass is slow due to daylight saving time mode. Surface water baiting in the morning and evening and punching the lawn with critter baits can be productive. Very close lines! Reporting by Olin Jensen, Jensen Directory Service.
