Bluegill: Medium to slow action for bluegill using mealworms or crickets. A mini jig tipped with some meat can be extremely productive method.

Catfish: Catfish bite has definitely slowed although anglers have still been successful this past week, cut bait over by Ramp 2.

Largemouth Bass: Largemouth bass bite has been pretty steady. The water level has dropped significantly so you will need to explore new territory. However the water level is rising slowly.

Trout: Stockings are back to regular scheduled days, being every other week. For best results try to come target trout as soon as possible after delivery of fresh fish. Use powerboat or mini jigs. Last trout stock was January 5th.
