Conditions : Sardis Lake: Best luck here for crappie has been trolling jigs and/or minnows or crankbaits 10 – 16 ft deep in the main lake from the dam to Holiday Lodge; crankbaits are doing a little better. Expect a few catfish or white bass on either. Crappie schools are following shad schools, meaning they’re scattered; some folks are doing well, others are catching just a few. For catfish, fish the flats by drifting natural baits with rod-and-reel, or fishing them with trotlines or noodles (jugs). White bass are schooling on little shad; fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits or jigs. Falling water levels are pulling fish, including largemouth bass, out of the backs of creeks into the deeper channels. Fish spinnerbaits or topwaters on channel edges 4 – 6 ft deep early and late in the day or Carolina rig soft plastics 10 – 15 ft deep on offshore structure or points midday.

The spillway had two gates open 3.0 ft each (1500 cfs) Tuesday. The gates were opened up some more last week, but the fishing hasn’t responded with better catches yet. Most fishing has been for catfish with natural baits. Some white bass can be taken in the fast water at the wing walls on jigs or crankbaits and bream will bite worms or crickets over the rip-rap rocks. Jug (noodle) fishing has also been producing some cats in the Lower Lake.
