Stripers have been feeding in the morning on the main lake river channel. Look for bait and fish on the sonar and fish baits from just above the fish to the surface. We have caught many big fish recently pulling flat lines in 150 feet of water. Gizzard shad from 4-6 inches have been getting the most attention from the bigger fish. The flat line bite has been shutting down around noon so starting early is key. Later in the day we have seen a lot of fish in the trees at camp branch and by the beach in 60 feet of water.When the water temps hit the 70s look for the fish to start schooling and holding tight to structure.We have caught fish on live bait and a number of artificials. The morning top water bite has been good around stumpy island. Best bites have come on the smack tackle smack jack and the zara spook both in a herring color. Working the baits slow has been key to drawing a strike.

March also has some great river fishing. Yellow bass,walleye,hybrids,stripers and catfish will all been seen up river this month at some point. The catfish will take cut gizzards and everything else will eat jigs,spoons,and live bait fished in the current or in the pools just down stream.
