July 9th Main Lake Water Temp. Lower Upper 70s

The Lake elevation is 3780.57 Storage is 153,100 acre ft.

The Main Lake is clear.

The past week was mostly a play week on the lake so there isn't a lot of new reports.

Smallmouth are still pretty active. Pulling Carolina Rigs on main lake points did work well over the weekend. Gulp 4" Minnows and Gulp 4" Worms both were good choices. There is fair top-water bite early in the day. Whopper Ploppers and Buzz Baits are working well.

White Bass are still pretty good trolling. The mid Lake area from the Golf Course to Watson Island has been pretty good. This week the Cordell Wally Diver started to produce well so they are probably moving a little deeper in the water column. They are also running the Shad up to the surface at times so keep a look-out for the feeding schools on top.

Walleye are slow. There were a few reports from anglers that caught some on live minnows on jigs in 30 to 40 feet of water over the weekend.

Crappie are slow.

Catfish are fair. Chicken Liver and Nightcrawlers are working well for those are fishing fom the shore. If you are fishing over a baited hole Danny King's Punch bait is doing well.

Bluegill are good on small jigs and 'Crawlers.

Crappie are slow.
