Most of the bass are being caught from 4-20ft. of water on a variety of baits. Bass are being caught in primary creek channels, like in the Wolftever Creek channel around Harrison Bay in 18 to 30ft. of water on spoons, jigs, and swimbaits .Bass are being caught around grass beds that have not been sprayed with herbicide. Night fishing for bass is fair at best.
