Conditions : Enid Lake: ??? Best pattern lately for crappie has been pushing jigs and/or minnows for suspended fish 12 - 16 ft deep out in the mouths of creeks or in the main lake. Some folks have been catching keeper black crappie fishing sunken brush tops in similar depths, but you will need a good depthfinder. A lot of short fish are being reported; use bigger baits and fish deeper to discourage smaller fish. Pinch down the barbs on hooks to make releasing short fish faster and less damaging; it does no good to release dead fish. Quite a few catfish and white bass have been hitting baits meant for crappie. Catfish have been biting various natural baits (chicken liver, cut shad, etc.) on lines, jugs (noodles), or rod-and-reel. White bass are in the main lake feeding on shad; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits over sandy points. Action is usually best just before dark. There is no size or number limit on white bass. For largemouth bass, fish spinnerbaits or crankbaits shallow near cover on the edges of creeks and river channels as the lake falls. In the main lake, fish crankbaits or soft plastics deep over the river channel edges or off main lake points.

The spillway had two gates open 1.0 ft each (650 cfs) Monday. Best luck down here has been for catfish on natural baits. Some white bass ("stripes") can be taken on small, shad-imitating lures (jigs, crankbaits, tailspinners, etc.).

About: - MDWFP electrofishing last fall found good spawns of crappie, bass, and white bass this past spring. There were good white crappie spawns in 2009, 2010, and 2011. The big 2009 year class averaged just under 12 inches in November and is growing normally. The abundance of smaller fish bodes well for crappie fishing through 2015. Bass from 2007 and 2008 were abundant from 14 to 17 inches (1.5 to 2.5 lb), but there were also good numbers of bass to over 7 lbs. Bream were not extremely abundant, but many were one-third to one-half pound.
