Conditions : Sardis Lake: Best luck 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. Several folks have been jigging the timber from Hurricane Creek to Holiday Lodge, too. Expect a few catfish or white bass on either. For catfish, fish the river and creeks with the water falling, or fish the flats by drifting natural baits with rod-and-reel, or fishing them with trotlines or noodles (jugs). There have been some good reports on blue catfish (white humpbacks) in the river channel above Hurricane Creek on koolaid-flavored chicken. White bass are schooling on little shad; fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits or jigs. As the lake falls, it will pull 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.

As the water falls, folks report balls of “fish eggs” or “jellyfish” clinging to sticks, trees, and about everything else. Those blobs are actually colonial animals called bryozoans that filter plankton out of the water. Nibbling by fish causes the colony to minimize its surface area to a round shape. Web search “freshwater bryozoans” for more on these interesting, ancient animals.

The spillway had two gates open 4.0 ft each (1800 cfs) Tuesday. Most fishing down here has been for catfish with natural baits. Largemouth bass have been biting jigs fished above a heavy weight in the fast water at the wing walls; you might catch some spotted (Kentucky) or white bass also. Jug (noodle) fishing has also been producing some cats in the Lower Lake.
