Rend Lake Fishing Report
Crappie fishing- good, using jigs. The fish are starting to move into a prespawn pattern and biting very good. We are catching crappie in structure in 8-16 feet of water on secondary points close to shallow spawning areas. The bridge bite is good right now as well.
Cat fish - good, cut shad and worms, fishing the deep main lake river channels and in the stumps.
Bass- fair, worms, rattle traps, crank baits, Jig&trailer. Fish around brush, bridges, lay downs, rip rap, weed beds, and drop off's.
White bass- slow, Jig and curly tail grubs, inline spinners. Look for them on main lake humps, drop offs and around the 154 bridges.
Bluegill- slow, Look in the back of necks and on flat shallow banks and on the
rocks. Fish shallow with crickets, worms or small jigs.
