Crown Lake
 
Boxhound Marina reports the lake is clear and a foot low. Bream are good on red worms and crickets. Catfish are good with chicken liver. No reports on crappie or bass. 
 
Lake Frierson
 
Lake Frierson State Park said the lake is murky, 2 feet low and falling. Bream have been fair, especially on crickets. Crappie are fair; they’re biting wax worms. Catfish are good. Try worms or, if you’re using jugs, live bait. No reports this week on bass or saugeye.
 
Spring River
 
Mark Crawford with Spring River Flies and Guides said water flow is 300 cfs at the spring and the water is clear. With low and clear water, trout have been much pickier with their food. Guppies in white and orange are working great and Y2ks are hot. White and hot pink Trout Magnets and white Rooster Tails are working great. If you’re on the water and the sun is beaming, you have to get the fly to the bottom. With low water, that has not been a problem. Beadhead flies will get you down great without hanging you up too bad. Trout have been moving up into the riffles and faster water.
