Blackshear: Level: 0.1 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid to low 70s. Clarity: Clear.
Crappie: Rusty Parker reports, “The crappie have been tough to find. I would say the crappie should be in the deep water hanging along the channel ledges, but after talking to a few fishermen, I am wrong once again. I went with a friend last week, and we ended up with 12 nice slabs that we caught by shooting the burnt railroad trestle in Swift Creek. Also, slabs are being caught around the Highway 280 bridge and the railroad trestle that’s south of the Highway 280 bridge. The best colors have been the 1/24-oz. Sore Lip Jigs in chartreuse/pink/chartreuse and chartreuse/watermelon/chartreuse. Be sure to stop by Flint River Outdoors and let Brad know how the fish are biting. May your catch be large and plentiful, and God bless you all.”
Bream: Rusty Parker reports, “I have gotten several reports about how the bream have been biting lately. The bluegill are still doing good for a lot of people, but overall it’s been slow for a few. Cedar Creek, Lincoln Pinch and the Cannon Branch areas have been producing nice gills by mainly using crickets.”
