The striper bite is good using cut anchovies — still fishing from the Crazyhorse campground north to the Entrance to the River/Sandbar. Be sure to throw out extra chum to attract these schools of pre-spawn stripers.
Trolling Pointer 100s or 128s during the first hour of light is producing some quality stripers from 4-6 pounds.
Flathead and channel catfish bite is good using cut whole mackerel and live bluegills. Predawn/early a.m. and late afternoon evening hours are when cats are most active.
Smallmouth bass are in full spawn. Try any small dropshotted worm like the Roboworm. Gitzits or small plastic craw like the Huddlebug will also work well on these aggressive bass, which are defending their bedding areas. The key is the bait must contact the bottom to trigger the bass to strike.
