Spring 2017

 The river is finally starting to settle down, try these techniques in the timber between the oxbows and the main river. As of April, the main river is pretty muddy and has a medium current. 

BASS~ White or white chartreuse or firetiger oz and 3/8 oz. spinnerbaits and buzzbaits will be a good producer around the shallow cover early and late in the day. As the sun comes up and the blade bite slows, chartreuse black back or chartreuse and blue back crankbaits will produce some great action in the timber. If the main river is not to muddy a firetiger colored crankbaits will be a good producer. If you enjoy fishing Texas rigged plastics, try dark colored creature baits rigged with a oz. worm weight. Best areas are going to be around shallow cover in 6 foot or less of water. 

Crappie~ No report
