The lake is 167.68 msl, and high pool is 172 msl. Both generators are running from 2 to 8pm. The north end of the lake is stained and clearing
as you go south. The water temperature is running in the lower to mid 80s.

Typical summer patterns are coming into play as the water temperature continues to rise and the lake continues to fall. Early morning and late evening work a top water plug, buzz bait, frog, trap, finesse plastic or shallow diving crank bait around pepper grass close to deep water. As the sun gets overhead and the bite slows down work soft plastics and deep diving crank baits on the creek and river ledges and main points falling into deep water.

The White bass are still on a rampage especially when they start schooling. Slab spoons and tail spinners working best on main lake sand bars from 10 to 24ft. Chrome traps and top water plugs working best when the bass are schooling.

Crappie being caught in 20 plus feet of water around planted brush.

The bream are slowing down and most have moved back into deep water.
Most of the earlier beds are out of the water with the lake falling.
