Visited Lake Stamford this Monday a.m. Talked a long time with the Stamford Marina Owner, Vance Proctor, here are his comments:
1) Rained approximately 2.5 inches this weekend and the water continues to run over the spillway.
2). Blue cat are biting very good on juglines and trotlines-A lot of different types of baits
3). All Spring he has observed one (1) legal 10 inch crappie. He stated he thinks there are two different spawns of crappie in the lake with some 8 inch fish and some 4-5 inch fish. He states that many people are trying crappie minnows and jigs and are just not catching any crappie. What few are being caught seem to be rare enough people are taking pictures of short fish.
4). Black bass are slow
5). A few legal white bass are being caught
Forecast seems to be really slow for everything except blue cats. Lakes will get minor runoff right now from the rains, but should it get a deluge in the area, the lake could flood, but currently it is not in danger.
Sorry, I have not tried myself, but coming from a marina owner, it sounds truthful, how many are not going to stretch the truth to get more customers.
