The week was not bad considering there was a full moon. You had to pick and choose your times to fish, and the best bite seemed to be in the middle of the night. Catches of 15-30 fish were possible anchored. Baits varied and seemed to change daily with threadfin / gizzard shad being prefered most days. Main lake water temps were around 60 degrees, and the South Fork was around 68 degrees. Water up the Catawba remained 56-58. The backs of the major creeks were muddy from the inflow of rainwater, and most of the lake is stained. Good current was present all week from the rains as Duke Energy moved water through the Catawba system. The lake remained about 7"-8" above it target elevation. All ramps are now open at South Point Access area.
