We used to all the time, although I haven't been down there in years. It used to be some incredible fishing. I'm sure someone will jump on here and share a story or a tip with ya.

Word has it that there have been a few caught at night. I was told a couple of days ago that the water temp is still in the upper 40's which means it will be a few more weeks before the stripers really start feeding good at night. I plan on going down sometime this spring.

Yeah, pretty much what Mean said. There are a few being caught right before dark casting the banks, but as far as the real thing, when the shad start spawning. That is still a few weeks away at least, maybe more. All depends on the water temp which starts and stops the shad spawning.

Don't qoute me on this, but I'm saying the low to mid 60's usually gets them started. When the water gets into the high 60's to low 70's though seems to be when they really turn on. The weather has so much to do with the night bite, let's just all pray for a nice calm spring with not a ton of rain and cold temps till the middle of May, like last year!

Meppsy, what was that you said about rain? I think we have had enough already don't you. How is the lake level looking?

Yeah, I hope I didn't jinx us! Looks like, last time i checked, it was around 14 feet above where they want it to be. That is 680 above sea level, that's where the lake level is supossed to be for sometime. So I'm sure they're pulling it real hard right now to get it back to 680 as fast as they can. This may also have an effect on the fishing. Seems to shut the bite down at times when the lake is being pulled real hard.

I'd say go to one of the many big creeks and work those areas that are at or around the mouth. Are you fishing day or night? Fish should be closer to the main lake, then the backs of the creeks.
