FLW Fishing Report: Good Fishing Despite Low Lake Levels

Scott Ellison here, with the FLW Weekly Fishing Report.

As there hasn’t been enough rain to settle the dust, the lake is about three feet low and there’s no sign that it’s going to go up anytime soon. Still, the air temperature has moderated, the water level is staying fairly stable and the fishing has gotten a lot better for most species.
