ATHENS — Water level is 5 inches high and clear. Water temp in the low 70s.

Fishing guide Jim Brack says bass fishing has been fair to good. Best bite has been along outside grass edges out to 12 feet using slow falling Flukes or Senkos or light Texas rigs. Brush piles in the 20-foot range are producing some good quality in jigs, Carolina rigs and shaky head worms.
