Lake Level is 870
Fall fishing has been heating up with the crappie starting to bite on channel drops and some of the shallower brush piles. The evening bite has been best, but you can catch some most of the day in 17-20 foot of water with an 1/8 oz jig. cast it out down the ledge and bring it back really slow across the bottom. Somedays it seems that a pony head gets better hits than just a jig head, so make sure you got a few of both.
The walleye have been hitting on secondary points on rattletraps, crankbaits, and grubs. Watch for the schools of shad and fish around and under them. Some trolling has been working also, as the water continues to cool, the fish should move a little shallower.
Bass have been moving to the back of the coves and creeks. Spinnerbaits and square bills in 5-8 foot of water is working best, but a few fish are still hanging out on main lake points.
The lake is covered in shad which should really fire up the fall bite. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call at 417-637-2277.
