The lake level is currently 278.76ft, which is 0.24 feet below full pool of 279.00 ft. Water clarity is about a foot. The lake has gotten pretty muddy from all the recent rain. The water north of the power lines is more stained than the south end of the lake (closer to the dam). The fishing has been great for largemouth both shallow and deep. The lake has plenty of vegetation in it right now. Lily pads, hydrilla, and pepper grass surround the lake for the most part. The further north you go on the lake the more vegetation you will begin to see. Locals have reported catching fish on topwater lures like a Zara spook, Whopper Plopper, and frog over vegetation. There are some people catching fish shallow on the Z-Man Jackhammer as well. Others have also reported catching fish off of deep-water structure with big worms and Carolina rigs. Staying in the 18-20 foot range seems to be the best for the deep-water guys. The temperatures are slowly starting to increase so the deep-water bite may turn on soon. Good luck and tight lines!
