Conditions : Sardis Lake: Water level 272.73, rising 0.1 ft/day, 14.2 ft over rule curve Tuesday. The water level is supposed to rise from 241 ft March 1 to summer pool (260 ft) by May 1. Expect rapid water level rises and drawdowns as rain events happen and the Corps tries to achieve and maintain rule curve. For water level information, call (662)563-4531

Recent rains raised the water again, but it did not drop to freezing afterwards. Some folks are finding crappie 2 - 3 ft deep (mostly males); they should be there until the water starts falling again. There is a full moon Sunday. Fluctuating temperatures and water levels have fish moving in and out of the shallows; best scenario would be stable or slowly rising water and warming temperatures. Most folks have been crappie fishing from Toby Tubby Creek uplake (Hurricane, Hwy 7, etc.), but Clear Creek and other coves should also be holding fish. Expect a lot of short fish from a big 2015 year class; they will be legal later this year. The White Bass bite in the river near the Hwy 7 bridge has slowed. Fish jigs or small crankbaits. There are no size on number limits on White Bass. No reports on anything else, although Largemouth Bass should be in the shallows feeding up before the spawn; spinnerbaits or buzzbaits should draw strikes and cover a lot of water.
