We had some real good luck up in there a few weeks back. If you're starting out at 360 walk the north side towards the lake about a quarter to half mile. There are some really good spots in there but they were deep at the time. In about 15 to 17 feet of water. This was a few weeks back and the water temps have gone up a little since then so the situation may be different now. We were crappie fishing but got into a few sandbass as well.
I believe all the recent High water conditions must have had an effect on them but given time and the creek turns green
things will improve. I`ve had my best luck in Walnut Creek in the winter time fishing the DEEP bends when the shad go into the creek and the Crappie follow along.Spring is different.When conditions are right ,they will bite and I`m not talking 9" fish. When people say JP only has only 9" fish, I laugh because I know better & Walnut has a bunch of em. Mountain Creek & Soap Creeks off fm661 as well. Patience Grasshoppers
