The water is warming up quickly, with surface temps in the low 70s in most areas of the lake. Fishing has been a little slow for the last few days, probably because of the unsettled weather we've been having. But the largemouth fishing has improved, and we've still managed to catch decent numbers of smallmouths by fishing a little deeper than we usually do. We've been catching fish on a variety of lures; Senkos, spinnerbaits, tube baits, etc. The fishing should pick up again as the weather stabilizes.
