WATTS BAR

Reservoir Conditions: The lake elevation is winter normal. Unstable weather and water levels are keeping the number of anglers down. Tailwater conditions are dangerous.

Bass: Some bass are being caught. Secondary, windward banks are popular with the very windy days we are currently having. The “Tennessee Rig” is the most used bait.

Crappie: Crappie fishing is good when they are located. Minnows or jigs are being used along some bluffs or around docks.

 

DALE HOLLOW

Reservoir Conditions: Fishing is great. The water temperature is 49 degrees and the lake is rising.
