   STRIPERS:  Summer patterns continue with plenty of schools roaming the main lake regions. Your depth finder will be the key in locating the schools which are holding primarily over 25 to 35 foot flats. Anglers trolling deep diving Redfins, DD-22 and Stretch 20’s are catching plenty of fish. Occasionally in low light times of the day smaller Stripers will chase bait to the surface where top water baits like Spooks, Pencil Poppers and Pop R’s attract vicious strikes. Top water Redfins also will take the larger Stripers waked across the surface.  Still some of the best catches have been on live bait. Stripers are feeding heavily on Herring when they are schooled. When the fish feed shallower Gizzard Shad pulled behind Water Bugz planner boards will produce the larger fish.
  
BASS : The bass are staying shallower than normal due the cold front that lowered water temps last week, however, some fish are still relating to deeper structures where bait is present still in a summer pattern. Mainlake points, humps, roadbeds,  brush and rock piles and bridges hold the bass now with numerous techniques catching fish. Deep diving crankbaits are working well along with jigs tipped with worms. Bass are being caught on the top of roadbeds and  ledges in Rose Valley, on top in the mouth of Contrary over schools of small Threadfin Shad,  over the older fish structures that were  put into the lake years ago, and all the uplake  bridges. Marina docks are also holding nice Bass.  Small shallow running crankbaits worked near stumps next to the shallow channels will put nice fish in the boat too. Topwater baits will also catch nice bass in low light times of the day.

   CRAPPIE: Plenty of Crappie holding on all the bridge pilings uplake and on brush piles in 10 to 20 feet of water. Very nice Crappie are being caught on docks that have lights on them at night. Uplake the Crappie are moving back up under shallower docks with structure or brush under the docks.

   CATFISH: The Cats love this water temperature and can be caught basically everywhere there is bait present. Work areas less than 25 feet deep and use your favorite bait. Live bait has been producing some larger than normal Catfish fished near the bottom over 25 foot flats.
