Water Conditions:  Fair-Good

Algae seems to be thinning

Fishing Conditions and Hatches: Good

Perch fry are starting to show!!!, and they are big enough to be noticed. This is the tough time where it's hard to figure out what they're on  because it's constantly changing. Between that and the stream flows dropping the fish have started migrating towards the stream channels. You can still find them in 25' to 35' but they're now showing in 10' to 22' and they aren't glued to the bottom so make sure you fish several depths. McGee Bay, Alligator Point, Big Hilton Bay and Green Banks are good bets. The adult perch have moved to the outside of the weeds. There are fish in Crooked Creek but haven't heard to much positive. Lots of Damsels and small Calibaetis emerging 10-1.
