    Water Temp: warm

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: I go out to New Castle at least 2-3 times a week and smallmouth activity has really picked up over the last 2-3 weeks. On Monday I was averaging a ish every 10 minutes with about 30% being over a pound ishing rom the shore along the dam and back side.
    City: Cedar City

    Tips: I have been doing real well with Panther Martin spinners sizes 4-9 in any color. Other spinners (Mepps, Blue Foxx, Silver Lake...) don't seem to get the ish to strike yet but I think that will change soon as the ish seem to be starting their all attening up or winter. Green with black patches seems to work well with the smaller ish and the larger ones seem to like a gold blade with brown dots painted on it. Small rattlin' rapalas work well ater it starts to get dark. Rattle traps seem to work well too. To avoid catching shiners use the larger spinners or crankbaits. I also caught a 19" trout on a large gold spin-a-lure. In the sandy areas I got a ew strikes on a rubber centipede but nothing big.
