Broken Bow

Broken Bow: April 26. Elevation above normal, water 67. Largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass good on Alabama rigs, spinnerbaits and plastic baits at 4-8 ft. along flats, weed beds and shorelines. Crappie good on grubs, tube jigs and minnows at 3-5 ft. along weed beds, standing timber and shorelines. Flathead, blue and channel catfish good on crawfish, sunfish, stinkbait and live bait at 10-15 ft. along channels, the river mouth and river channel. Some of the best panfish angling of the year takes place around opening weekend. Crappies are usually in the shallows and are frequently in the spawning mood. Bluegills are also shallow and will readily suck in small jigs under a bobber.
For the first time, opening day anglers will be able to target both largemouth and smallmouth bass on a catch and release basis. This option provides a great opportunity for anglers who want to feel the tug on a line more than they want to clean and eat fish.
