Conditions : Enid Lake: ??? With the lake on a fast rise, expect most fishing, except for catfish in the river and creeks, to be slow. Fishing should improve later in the week as the water level stabilizes and starts to clear and fall again. MDWFP creel surveys show most crappie anglers are spider-rigging jigs and/or minnows 6 - 14 ft deep out from creek mouths in the main lake. Minnows have been the key to getting bites, but are also attracting more short fish. For white bass, fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits or jigs. Fish worms, shad, or stink baits in the river and creeks as long as rainfall runoff lasts. When the lake resumes falling, 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.

MDWFP electrofishing recently found bass, bream, and crappie on brush tops in 2 – 6 ft of water. Several bass over 7 lbs were weighed. Most crappie on brush tops were keeper size black crappie. Crappie were also in standing timber 6 – 8 ft deep. White bass and small largemouths were scattered on sandy flats feeding on small shad.

The spillway was only releasing 350 cfs Tuesday. Expect it to open up and fishing to improve later in the week. Action here has been slow. Best luck has been for catfish on various natural baits. Some white bass can be taken in the faster water and a few bream and bass can be taken on the rocks.

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.
