ATHENS — Water level is 9 inches high and clear. Water temp in the mid 70s.

Fishing guide Jim Brack says bass fishing patterns remain consistent over the last couple weeks. The fish are scattered around grass beds in 8-12 feet, hitting jigs, shaky heads and wacky rigs. Brush piles in 18-25 feet are the best bet for crappie, with occasional limits reported on shiners. A few bass hitting Carolina rigs and Texas rigs in the same areas.
