We’ve received word of several fish catches this morning. Conditions are setting up well for these anglers today. Bright sunshine and light winds, along cooler than average temperatures are making for a great day to be outdoors.
From talking with anglers over the last several days, it. sounds like a variety of baits and locations are in play. Some are flipping shallow cover, blind bed fishing, while others are power fishing their way down the bank with topwaters and spinnerbaits.
