Not anything like it normally is this time of year. You can seen some on the beds in 2.5' or shallower but it's murky. We caught 4 off beds on Wednesday but weren't specifically looking for them. Coach

Right now you are going to have to find clear water, after today it will be churned up pretty bad with the North wind. I was there Tuesday and it was the murkiest I have seen it. Like chocolate milk north of the bridge. Fish natural colors, and you will get bit.

Fished it Tuesday. Water very murky. Bite still very good on green pumpkin senko and black horny toad. Caught a few off beds but very hard to see unless depth is abou 2-3 ft! Goodluck
