"Fishing has either been hot, or not. It seems like the fish are keying on a certain bait on each day. Some days they will only eat threadfins; the next day only gizzards; some days they seem like they won't eat anything. Some nice fish have been caught around the main river island from 18 to 37 feet of water. Also down at the dam some fish are holding in and around the points and coves. The bigger hybrids are schooled up and feeding pretty good, as well. Look for them on humps and the lower end of the lake. There have been no busting fish to speak of, but the downline bite is pretty good. A new lake record hybrid was caught last month and is just under 12 pounds, but I bet it gets broken this summer. There are some big hybrids in this lake, and they seem to be really healthy. The best bite seems to be from just before sunrise to about 9 a.m., but you can pick up fish till 11 a.m. on most days."
