Water temp on coosa is 87 degrees the crappie have moved to the river channels on structure the bite is slow but using minnows will catch some from daylight to around 11:00 before sun gets up.
The spawn is just about over a few is left but most now are headed to cover and longline trolling is over and you have to spider rig on the cover and now it is summer pattern fishing.
Due to the heavy rains all coosa river are in flood stage and muddy which making these lake hard to fish and bite is very slow the lake should crest by Tuesday Feb 26,2019 and will take about a week to clear up and get back to full pool they are about 6 ft above normal pool.
All the lakes are still muddy and fishing is very slow
All the lakes are muddy and the fishing is real slow due the flood gates are open and the lakes rose back to full pool ,looks like it will take a few weeks to get better if the rain will ever quit.Sorry for this bad report.
Fishing is very good compared to all other lakes that are still muddy longline trolling is doing good.
