There are some 'eyes moving into the shallows now. Really isn't as good as it could be. Caught some, but most were small. Did get a couple of eaters though using Lindy rigs with a shiner. Check the sandbars, especially at night. Tried to go deep too using jigheads tipped with shiner. Fished 30' to 35' and caught a few very nice ones.
Tried for some crappies and got zilch. I don't think they are happening yet. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong cause I sure would like to find them.
Heard tell that the smallies are nice. Some in the 18 inch category being caught in front of small streams - anywhere that has moving water. Not much of a smallie guy though.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
