This bass fishing report is from Josh Panyard

Bass fishing is getting good. Water Level is now down 6.22 feet below full pool. With the cooler air temps the water temps are starting at 74 degrees warming up to 76 degrees by the afternoon. The fish are starting shallow first thing in the morning. Try top water baits or a fluke for the first couple of hours at the shallowest part of the points or back in the pockets. Once the sun gets up start looking for the bait. The key here is to pay attention to what depth the bait is hanging out in. Once you figure that out fish that depth on any points, humps, or channel swings near the bait. Key baits here are a jig or a shaky head. The other key is finding the cover in these areas especially any brush that seems to be key. The upper river arms have started the turnover process so if you are fishing in these areas be patient the bite is a little tougher in these areas. Again look to see where and at what depth the bait is in and that will be your starting point. With the water level continuing to fall be careful out there. Be safe and hope to see you out on the water.
