Well it's the dog days of summer and fishing has been very predictable this time of year. With constant air temperatures in the 100's, the surface water temp's are beginning to climb into the high 80'sF. This means the fish are slow and deep most of the day. If you get out early you can run into a few bass and crappie. Using a Texas rig and throwing a worm on bottom seems to be the best bass technique right now. The more successful fishing we've seen has been by boat through means of trolling. We've had several patrons come in and tell us the sand bass have been running down at the dam in 7-12ft of water. It seems that our fisherman are catching them on shad colored deep divers.
It may be hot out there but that doesn't mean fishing has stopped, until next time keep fishin friends
