The striped bass action is good with boils of 1 to 3 stripers chasing shad in the morning and late afternoon hours. Trolling super spooks, sassy shads, and Rat-L-Traps in white chrome/blue is working best.

Black Rock cove north to the entrance to the river has been the best place to search for the “boils.”

Channel catfish bite is excellent with numerous cats being caught on cut markerel and shrimp off deeper points and coves in 15 to 35 feet of water.

Smallmouth bass biting good on Hula grubs in green pumpkin color rigged on 3/8-ounce football jigs fished around rocky points and gravel shorelines in 6 to 15 feet of water.

Top-water poppers, Sammys and buzzbaits are also working well for smallmouth and largemouth over gravel flats and submerged weedbeds in the morning and late afternoon hours.
