Fishing Report as of 08/01/19
Lake level is 722.89 and falling as they are running water. The water temp 79 in the Osage and Grand. The water is clear.
Fishing has begun to get better as the water recedes with some nice crappie being taken in 12 to 18 feet of water 6 to 12 feet deep in the flooded bushes on minnows; willows, hedges and cedars are best, and they seem to be bunched up in some areas.
Whites and hybrids have started to feed on new hatch on the surface early and late in the day. This should get better as the water continues to fall. Sassy Shad and 1/2oz jigging spoons are making them mad enough to bite. Seems like right now it is not a feeding buy, but a reaction bite. Green Chartreuse and also white sassy shad have seemed to the the choice.
That’s it for August 1,. 2019 fishing report… Help the other guy when you can. I hope that all of you remember your life jacket works better when it is worn.
