Paint Creek Lake
Crappie fishing isn’t great, but it’s not bad, either. The best action has been along channel banks in 6-10 feet of water. Look for stumps and laydowns and use minnows or Bobby Garland Baby Shad. Bass are also along the banks, going after black/blue jigs or green/pumpkin 6-inch worms. Fish the flats for catfish, using nightcrawlers or cut shad. Bluegills are hitting waxworms around stumps and brush. For white bass, fish early or late and watch for the jumps. In the spillway, catfish are hitting chicken liver and saugeyes are going after chartreuse twisters with red glitter.
