ATHENS — Water level is about 5 inches high and stained to fairly clear on the main lake, stained in the creeks. Water temp in the upper 70s.

Fishing guide Jim Brack says bass fishing has been fair to good. Fish are in a post-spawn mode with some fish along outside grass edges in 12 feet, hitting Texas rigs, Senkos and Flukes. Also some fish around brush piles in 15-20 feet, taking jigs, Carolina rigs and shaky head worms. Crappie are post spawn as well, hitting jigs strolled along outside grass edges. Brush piles at mid-range depths also holding some fish.
