    Water Temp: cool

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Super clear water, still pretty cool. While the trout were active, the Bass were real lazy. Along nearly every bank I walked along I could spot at least one very good sized bass lingering in one spot. I hooked into a very nice 4 lb smallie along the south side of Cleghorn Cove using a 3/4 trout colored spoon. At parking lot 2 near the marina if you walk south along the swim beach back into a small hole, there is some floating debris. I drew out several largemouth from back there under logs with Senkos. in the center of hole it is deeper than it looks and they seem to be spotting their beds, but they are not real active
    City: Delta, PA

    Tips: Senkos for now, the water is real clear so keep them natural. Baby Bass, Salamander and trout colored is my recomendation. before 8 am on the banks and after 4pm in the coves. between 6pm and 9pm if you can get on some docks, Pig N Jig.

    Report: Arrived here early and had the boat on the lake at 8:00am. Fished down by the dam. Hardly any wind today. Good fishing, boated 3 large Cats,
    and 8 Stripers. Best bait was Anchovies. Stripers wee hitting in the top 10', Cats on the bottom. Very few boats out today, maybe 8 at the most plus a couple jet skis. Left lake at 3:00pm. Kids fishing at the launch ramp were getting nice sized trout (est. 1-2 pounds).
    City: Apple Valley

    Tips: Get here early! Bring your own bait to be on the safe side. Office/Tackle Store was closed when we came in to clean our fish, not sure if it was even open today.

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Got out on the lake and started fishing by 8:20am. No wind. Fished down by the dam in 30' of water. Fished for Striped Bass. Best bait was Frozen Anchovies. Good Striper action, mostly smaller fish around 15", got some nicer fish around 18" and took a limit of these home for dinner. Got off the lake at Noon as the wind was really starting to come up.
    City: Apple Valley

    Tips: Plan on being off the lake by around Noon as the wind most always comes up, sometimes its rather hard to get your boat back on the trailer at the launch ramp due to the wind. Best to bring your own bait.

    Water Temp: 67

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: SOCB had a tourney. The bite was tough. Everyone had trouble getting keepers. There were quite a few dinks caught, but after the AM bite, the wind just never came up, and so no fish turned on for the afternoon bite. So it was a beautiful day and hot with only a light breeze. Needles to say, both Brian and I were depending on the wind for our prefish patterns (jerkbaits, spinners and rip baits). I had also found alot of fish stacked out deep on the secondary points with big bait balls. The low pressure and rain must have changed that, becouse they weren't there. The water had come up 5 feet or so, so the grass wasn't matted like before, so the frog bite wasn't there. Great day with bad fishing.

    Tips: Most fish caught early on main points shallow on cranks, shallow jerk baits and drop shot before 9:00. From then it was just scratch with drop shot and split shot.

    Report: After a late opening of the park, we started fishing the center of the lake where there is a shallow point, about two feet deep, with top water, no luck. We then moved to the south east corner near the no motorboat access. We switched to 4" plastics started to fish the shore and caught 5 large mouth bass ranging from 2lbs 1oz to 3lbs in about 30min from 9:00 to 9:30 and that was it for the day.

    Water Temp: 63

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: The water is extremely dirty from the recent rain runoff. The largemouth fishing was very slow. A couple of nice fish on jigs. The striper fishing is great with fish averaging 2 to 5 lbs. I threw topwater, senkos, spinnerbaits. All produced good quality Stripers. I stumbled onto the Stripers while fishing for Largemouth.

    Tips: The Stripers are everywhere. From the shore to the middle of the lake. Throw a Senko right on the shore and you'll get fish. I'm sure all of the traditional Striper baits should work as well. I saw people hooking up throwing white Striper jigs .... Good fishing....
