: Crown Lake: Boxhound Marina (870-670-4496) said the water is high, fairly clear, and the surface temperature is 90 degrees. Bream are biting very well on bloodworms fished near the shoreline. Crappie have been slow the last few weeks. Bass are excellent early and late in the day on topwater lures and dark soft-plastic lures from the shore to as deep as 20 feet. Catfishing is very good at night on worms and chicken livers.
