This a a report from NRO Dixson:
"I checked over 100 licenses this weekend at Clark and Arkalon. Fishing at Clark has slowed and the water temp came down ~10 degrees with the run-off. Some stocker sized channels being caught on dough bait, livers and shrimp. A few 4-6lb channels being caught, but nothing like the last 2 weeks. Very few LM Bass, crappie, and whites being caught. A couple people were targeting walleye and knew what they were doing. They said fishing was slow, but had a 23 incher and a 18 incher and had caught a handful of shorts. They were drifting with crankbaits and rattle traps."
