Conditions : Sardis Lake: Water level 241.29 ft, stable, 1.6 ft above rule curve Tuesday. Expect rapid water level rises and drawdowns as rain events happen and the Corps tries to maintain rule curve; it is supposed to rise to 241 ft by March 1. For water level information, call (662)563-4531

There have been few reports lately although some folks have been putting in on the warmer days. We are about a month away from spawning action unless it stays very warm. Best luck for crappie should be trolling or drifting 4 - 8 ft deep in the main lake or jigging in any remaining cover with jigs and/or minnows. No reports on Largemouth Bass. White Bass are still mixed in with crappie in the main lake with just a few reports of them running up the creeks and rivers. About the best reports have been catfishing using noodles (jugs) or trotlines with shad or other baits over mudflats.

The spillway had two gates open 2.0 ft each (800 cfs) Tuesday. About the best reports here have been catfishing natural baits near the bottom. If there are any White Bass running yet, they will be in the current where you can drift a 2 jig rig just off bottom or fish small crankbaits or tailspinner lures. For crappie, fish a jig and/or minnow under a bobber off the rocks.
