FAIR. Water slightly stained; 65-66 degrees; 0.03’ low. Largemouth bass are good with crankbaits, spinners, and jigs shallow and with cover. There are so many habitats to fish largemouth. Make sure to find extended cover spots. Striped bass are fair. White bass remain slow. Crappie are fair on minnows in structure. Channel and blue catfish are fair on stinkbait.
