Anglers are continuously catching bass. The bass are in top water the first few hours then in the 30-35 ft range.  Anglers have seen tons of bass just cruising by but you have to know what to do to get them on your hook.   Try using senko’s , creature baits and bluegill type lures.


There were no reports of anglers catching striper this week.  Cut bait, and flies are recommended for catching striper.
