Striped Bass: Similar to last week. Chicken liver bit is still going strong with many fish being hooked over near the dam and inlet. Surprisingly the boils have picked up over in the East End with almost every evening aloha bu the time they start, boats are due back. 

Bluegill: Use crickets and meal worms. Jigging or fly lining a worm is a very productive way to fish. 

Catfish: Many large fish have been being caught at the inlet. Some pushing double digit numbers. 

Largemouth Bass: A few of our lake regulars have caught some quality bass. Some topwater action but mostly plastic worms and soft plastic swimsuits with underpins. 

Trout: No Action

Carp: No Action
