Since the lake has been closed since August 12th, this fish report is a fire update instead.
The “Lake” fire is about 55% contained and fire crews are not expecting full containment until just before Labor Day weekend.
Both the upper and lower lakes remains closed as the numerous fire crews are using the swim beaches and parking lots as a base camp.

The Oxblood and Morning Dawn patterns are working better in the stained water or mud lines, and I switch to the more translucent colors like Neptune Shad, Watermelon Candy and Purple Smoke in the clearer areas. Netting Shad for bait remains difficult as the falling water is keeping them off the bank for now. Hopefully they will come shallow when the lake stabilizes in a month or two.
