    Water Temp: 55

    Water Clarity: Muddy (0-2 foot visibility)

    Report: Fished ABA last month. Wanted to post since there seems to be little said about this lake.... Fished mostly wood, grass and rock banks on the west arm. (not sure the name) caught 5 fish for 6th place. caught most on jig's and sencos in brown color. Got five bites all day.
    City: central point

    Tips: Fish slow and work your baits into 15 feet of water. Bite was sluggish. Good luck to all you tourney guys at the last event of the year.

    Water Temp: 61-75

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: got a late start on Friday, but i got out on the water so that is all that matters i guess. Fished every bank i could, trolling motor on high! several nice crusers on the east side of the lake. moved to the west side of the lake around noon and stayed in the grass. landed several 4 pounders and one nice 6 pounder. the 6 pounder came off of a log and with a sinko. The rest came out of the grass with a 1/4 oz jig.
    City: Marcola

    Tips: stay in the grass, all but one fish was in the grass. fish are spooky for some reason? stealth mode is how i work them.

    Water Temp: not known.....c

    Water Clarity: Muddy (0-2 foot visibility)

    Report: Went out for a couple of hours by the damn. I was casting a black/chartreuse 1/4oz stanley jig with a black and orange YUM craw on the back. Hooked up with one in the two hours I was there..he was about 2-3lbs.
    City: Springfield

    Tips: I really like to fish the west-11th side in late March early April. Fish the channels with a chartreuse or bleeding shad color FAT RAP..SLOW..just enough to get to the bottom. Caught a few 6-7lbs there last year.

    Report: Fished the mud flats on the south end of the lake. Hooked up on nearly every cast, but very little size to them.

    Tips: There are enough fish that you need to go with a fairly large lure to fend off the little ones.

    Report: Water was extremely cold, shore access is limited. Best luck may be by the dam. Seabirds were actively feeding below the spillway, but I did not manage to catch anything at any of the locations I attempted.
