    Mike,
    You don't say if you are taking a boat; I suspect not if you are/have been a pay laker.
    If you can afford it hire a guide for a day. It is well worth the money both in the fishing and the knowledge a good guide will share with you.
    I have never bank fished there at this time of year but I'm sure the local guys will be along soon to fill you in...W
     

  3. well if you are bank fishing there is plenty of places to go now since both lakes are so low. Right now they are close to 10 feet low . if you are using a boat, make sure you have access to a usable boat landing.
