Weather Clear 38-56 deg
Water stained to muddy 47-48deg
The lake came up over 65ft in 1 week, this is just amazing! As expected this changed the bite. In the morning I threw Spinnerbaits and A-rigs for the first hour with no luck fishing steep walls. I changed to a Ima Beast hunter crank bait and Boom! I stick a sold 2+ on a flat point, so I keep cranking and Boom another 2+ , I felt like I was going to crushem, but that was all the crankbait would yield all day. It was a tough day, but we mixed it up and caught a few on Rip baits and a few on Senkos and Tubes in darker colors. Cleaner water is in the Middle fork if that’s what you want to fish. At the end of the day fish moved shallow and we had some more action on Rip baits.
