"In the coming weeks with the cooler nighttime temperatures, you can bet the water temps will start to fall and put the fish in some active patterns. Fall fishing is just right around the corner."

"This is the time the white bass fishing is really good. On days when the current is present on the main lake we are catching limits in 1 to 2 hours early in the morning on rooster tails and slab spoons on or near river channel points."
