Bates Field and Stream (501-470-1846) said water was stained and had a surface temperature of 64 degrees early this week. The water level was normal and most of the fishing has been good to excellent. Catfishing was excellent in the creek channels, mostly on minnows, goldfish and on trotlines. Bass fishing was good with topwater lures and flukes in the lily pads. Bream fishing was excellent with the activity just below the surface and around the shoreline; worms and crickets are the bait to use. Crappie were fair and working in 6-8 feet depth around the cypress trees and hitting minnows and jigs.
