As of Mid December nothing. Water temp is 68 to 72 so it should be happening over the next two full moons, but I've yet to see it, some of the tournament directors have been cleaning the bass that have died in their tournaments and have shown no signs of eggs. Last two years (2014 and 2015) they shut one of the reactors down in October for maintenance and they moved up in November and December. Hell it might be March this year. I know the year they opened the lake back up in 2011 we were catching them on beds in May.

Been backed up a little since they didnt turn the reactors off which normally cools the water. With this cold spell it will help for sure on the south side. Havent been in a couple weeks so cant say for sure. Heard they may shut down one reactor in April but I don't think that has been confirmed.

Thanks for the info. I will be fishing this Saturday and it sounds like I'll be fishing deeper for a bigger bite.

C-rig, t-rig, dropshot 10-25 off points will get bit. You can go shallow and catch fish but bigger bites will be deeper. But I wouldnt be afraid to try a little shallower with this cold spell. Gonna be a chilly start on Saturday! Good luck!

Tough lake to do any sight fishing on as well. With the clearer than normal water, the fish I have found bedding are a lot deeper than a normal lake and harder to see.

I caught fish on beds Christmas eve. Several small males, but one female in the 4lb range.

One unit will come down around the first of April and be down for about a month. And there will a shutdown in the fall also.
