The Lake Conway spillway has one gate open and the river / creek is backed up to the spillway- which means plenty of 'bait fish' activity Just watched a guy (1PM) that walked out on the pipe line and threw his net in shallow / calm water on opposite shore - he was getting a mix of all types and throwing in an area where you're not as likely to lose a net. He was throwing back the skipjacks and shad that were more than 4" long - he must like fishing with smaller whole bait instead of cut bait ? ? ? He had a bucket full in a very short time ! ! Anyway - the lake level is such that they will more than likely keep that gate open all week - maybe even into weekend if we can get a little rain I have left over bait in my freezer and I'm not really ready to put out a trotline yet - but I may not be able to resist - may go get some bait fish in next day or so.
