Went to Loyd Park for a few hours. Temps were in the low 80’s and the winds were around 5mph. Put in near the swimming area so I could paddle to the trees on the other side of the lake. I found fish on my fish finder, but couldn’t get them to bite.
I paddled towards a brush pile that is now visible due to low water. I caught a small bass and a white bass while trolling around 400 ft from the brush pile using a crank bait.
Paddled back into walnut creek to check the water levels. The water was a little higher, and the entrance to the creek is now fully passable. The water was a light brown color, which usually happens after any rain. It will take a few days for that to clear up, so I didn’t expect to catch anything.
Found a few small crappie and on greenie while looking around. I didn’t paddle to far because the fish don’t usally bite too well when the water is that brown color. I paddled back past the brush pile and hooked something, but it got off before I could reach my rod.
