Bass: SLOW  ---
   Some Largemouth are being caught on deeper brush piles,ledges and road beds  as the water continues to warm. Try big deep diving crankbaits or Texas rigged Ol Monster worms . Best fishing is around brushpiles in these areas,if you can find them.Water generation always improves this bite.-Downsize baits in these same areas & improve your chances for spotted bass.--------With the unusually high water from this summer's rains, some fish choose to remain shallow. Top water baits such as Pop R's, Zara Spooks and Spro Poppin frogs can still be effective for shallow  fish, especially around grass and weed beds . Try targeting areas north of the 219 bridge in the Chattahoochee . Also have a jig handy to pitch into wood cover in these same areas. 
----Slower than normal,but still fairly consistent, spotted bass are still your best bet. Spots are being caught  by casting Spot Remover heads loaded with Shakey Tail worms or just dragging a Carolina-rigged Zoom finesse worm or mini lizard around sloping gravel banks . Also try a small Texas rigged worm or a pig-n -jig around blow down trees. Try fishing around the bridges and bridge pilings with  small crankbaits, and Shakey head rigs, especially during periods of water generation. 


Linesides: FAIR ---  Hybrids & stripes are down lake in good numbers. Expect the down-line  bite on live bait to continue to be  at least OK, throughout the summer. --- Some fish are  surface schooling on  the main lake and  can be caught on Roostertails, topwaters, pop n cork rigs and Storm Swim  Shad lures. ---Trolling with crankbaits  is also fairly effective and can help keep you cool on a hot day!


Crappie: FAIR  ---  Spawned out fish will typically move out and hold on deeper brush & structure  or under docks. Try dropshotting minnows or shooting docks  near deep water for the best results-- Night fishing is usually pretty good all summer.Try under the bridges with lights .    

                  
Bream:  FAIR ---  Don't forget about our bream & shellcracker. Finding an active bed can take a little effort but when you do , you can have a ball ! Bedding usually takes place  on the full moon cycles in the summer.  Look for shallow cover in the backs of pockets. Sandy flats & stump beds tend to draw the fish like a magnet. Use live pink worms , crickets and small jigs for the best results.  

Catfish: GOOD ---  Lots of channel cat are being caught  by the few anglers that target them . Live & cut baits (and worms of course) fished on bottom will catch cats all over the lake, as long as fairly deep water is nearby.-- Jug Fishing is also fun & productive. ----- To target flatheads, go to a larger bait like a 4-5 inch bream or large shiner  and fish the same areas.Be sure to increase the size of your rigs as fish in the 20-30-lb. range are fairly common.   

 

LAKE IS FULL POOL AND CLEAR !! water temp mostly upper 80's & even  low 90's in places!
