FAIR. Water slightly stained; 74 degrees; 0.01’ high. Boat traffic has increased with pent up demand, so please use caution in boat lanes. Largemouth bass are good in the spring pattern with Carolina rigs, topwater, and jigs. There are hot spots just off of texas island drops. Striped bass remain fair in deep water. White bass are fair on deep points fishing Alabama rigs when you can and spoons when you can’t. Crappie are good on minnows. Channel and blue catfish are fair on stinkbait.
