Bass fishing is Good. Most Bass are finished spawning although there are still some bedding.
Fish can be caught on many different lures after the spawn. Some great technique's are to fish a 3/8 ounce spinner bait in fire tiger with double gold colorado blades and a Gizz 4 crank bait from Smack Tackle in solid white or blue and white in the spawning bays, use these lures to cover water. Fish a texas rigged lizard or worm or a 4 inch flipping tube in june bug when you find any shallow cover or boat docks, target the backs of the docks and especially any that meet a sea wall. A lot of grass is starting to turn green and the post spawn bass are starting to use it, fish it with a 3/8 ounce spinner bait in fire tiger with double gold colorado blades.
Spotted Bass are back out on the deeper main lake points and river channel ledges. Carolina rigged plastics are producing good. Stroking a 3/8 ounce jig in brown craw with a Zoom chunk trailer in pumpkin seed is catching some good fish.
Crappie fishing is Fair. Most crappie have finished spawning and started moving back to the creek channel ledges. Fishing brush piles in 8-12 feet of water with minnows and Jiffy Jigs is producing smoe great fishing. Shooting docks with a 1/32 ounce Jiffy Jig in Color JJ13 and JJ17 and JJ20 and JJ25 is producing some good catches. Trolling Jiffy Jigs in 1/16th ounce in the Little river area is producing some decent catches also. Bumping bottom with minnows in Little River and the Chattooga River is producing some good catches also.

Striper fishing is Fair. Most stripers are up the Coosa river to make their spawning run. Fishing cut bait on the bottom and bucktail jigs in the Coosa River behind the lock and dam is producing fish. A few Stripers are starting to be caught in the main lake but the big numbers will not start showing up until mid to late may
Catfish are biting Good. Catfish are being caught all over the lake. Jug fishing in the bays of the main lake is a sure way to load the boats with some nice fish, The docks at JR's Marina is producing some good fish also. Use cut bait, whole crappie heads or any kind of stink bait.
