Striper fishing has been fair, but anglers reported good fishing for catfish and decent bassin’. Striper anglers have been catching fish using cut baits or jumbo live minnows early or late in the day. Anglers have been moving from control gate to control gate looking for biting fish. The artificial bait anglers scored a few bites using topwater and tube baits. The topwater anglers have been targeting largemouth bass and striper with walking baits and Whopper Ploppers, and a few anglers reported catching striper on tube baits using a very slow retrieve. Lower flows have improved the largemouth bite, and anglers reported using Senkos, topwater, and weightless flukes to land good quality bass.
