No report, just a couple of questions.

I plan to be at LOE by the end of next week. Can anyone give a report on how the Crappie and LMB are biting at this point?

Also, is the water still coming over the damn or is it back at normal pool? Thanks, Bob.

I wasn't at LOE, but I did fish at Crab Orchard, Devils Kitchen and Kinkaid last week. Crab Orchard was slow all around with only Bluegill being above average while spawning. Kinkaid was pretty slow as well, but we did manage to catch several nice crappie and a few really nice bass while casting and jigging deep weed lines. Devils Kitchen was casting for bass only and I managed several in the 10-14 inch range, but nothing larger while casting spinnerbaits shallow and crankbaits along deep weedlines. Surface temps were generally 80+ and air temps were in the 85-90 range.

I fished this past Saturday and Sunday (7-20,21) We fished for about 5 hours each day and boated over 40 bass. In the summer you have to fish deeper and FAST to get the bass to strike. All bass were caught at deep bars (15 to 20), where the feeder creeks met the main channel. Below link for a video on some of the bass we caught on YouTube:

Can anyone tell me the water level of the lake? Are they spilling over the dam, or at normal pool?

Also, how's the crappie and Bass fishing been? Any updates would be appreciated.

The plant only shuts one unit down at a time for maintenance. This starts towards the end of march until usually the first of may, and the first of oct through mid november. Only for some kind of major deal do they ever have both units down at the same time. Anyways 6 weeks in spring and usually 6 weeks in fall is scheduled down maintenance.

Had an opportunity to fish LOE 6/26 for a few hours. Crappies were very tough to find due to the ~4.0" of rain the night before. Found a few LMB up in some of the fingers wherever fresh water was running into the lake, but were all the way back into the coves, as far as they could go.

All fish caught were released to fight again. Smile
