Fishing is still productive here

The water level is down due to evaporation, but fishing is still productive here.  This is normal.  Aquatic vegetation is thick so shore fishing is difficult. Best results are from a float tube or small cartop boat.  Expect good fishing for bass and slow to fair fishing for trout, though a few trout in the 13” to 15” range have been caught.  The catfish are cooperating as are the bass with bass averaging 10 to 13 inches.  The usual worms and PowerBait, as well as small spinners, rooster tails, and panther Martins should work. Fly rodders should be using black or olive wooly buggers or leech patterns, hares ears, PT nymphs and chironomid patterns.  The same soft plastics that work at Ruby Lake NWR should work here for bass.
