The lake is .4 above full pool, temperatures in the low 70’s and June the fishing will be about transition. The spawn will be working its way down, but the males are biting aggressively right now. A bulk of the fish can be found in depths around 25 feet. The females can be found going deeper after they lay their eggs and feeding more aggressively, in drop-offs, and mid-lake.

In the mornings the fish can be found around the shorelines and structure and as the heat of the day kicks in the shady areas are holding.

As we welcome June in the fish can be expected to go deeper 35-50 ft.

Now the weather should stabilize and the fish can hunker down into their summer patterns. Fish attractors, main points and humps. The warm weather and clear water call for more of a vertical drop and subtler approach. Crankbaits, and spinnerbaits, worms right now.

Vegetation will keep some bass in the shallows as it heats up because of the oxygen. Shad will feed and spawn there and where there’s shad there’s largemouth bass. This past weekend found the bass at the mouth of creeks and bays. Bluegills and catfish are jumpin’.
