The water is dirty and certainly still stained up pretty good, but the filthy agua hasn't necessarily muddied up the bite any.
“The lake's still that yucky green color,” reported guide Rusty Brown, “but the fishing is still pretty good. Guys keep getting some nice fish on frogs and there's been a bit of a punching bite with Sweet Beavers around Bear Trap and Yellow Bar that's been getting some good ones.” When there's a bit of wind blowing, throwing chartreuse or white spinnerbaits is also picking up some solid bass.
On the striper end of things, linesides have been boiling in the early morning along the banks near the launch ramp, making for some easy pickin's most mornings.
“You couldn't get 'em in the boat fast enough,” said angler Rich Richardson, who fished the 'Mid midweek. “We were getting hit every other cast moving right down the shoreline. The silver Kastmaster was just killing 'em! After those early boils, they split to deeper water and I got a few on an 8-inch trout imitation, then got another 15 fish trolling the umbrella rig down the channel and was off the water by about 10 a.m.”
Richardson also noted that the water was pretty green and funky, but wherever it's not too bad is generally holding some willing and biting fish.
