HOT SPOTS LAKE CATHERINE Large numbers of trout are in the tailrace and feeding on shad and insect hatches. Bank fishermen are catching the most fish but have been hampered by fast water close to the dam. Brightly Lake colored Power Bait, corn, redworms and wax worms Charles combined with a marshmallow floater are Black River St. Francis working best. Fly fishermen are catching River trout on Woolly Buggers, micro-jigs, San Juan worms, and egg patterns. Spin fishermen are having success using Super NORTHEAST & Dupers in silver or gold, 1/16 ounce jigs in gray EAST-CENTRAL or white, and Rooster Tails in brown or white. LAKE CONWAY Bream fishing is fair using worms and crickets fished close to brush piles. Crappie Horseshoe fishing slowed a little, but they are still biting well Lake on minnows and jigs fished around stumps 3-4 feet Arc deep. Bass are biting well on spinnerbaits fished 3-4 feet deep. Catfishing is fair.
