On Monday a friend and I went Center Hill. I just couldn't figure it out and didn't catch much. I caught a total of 5 fish with just one keeper smallmouth. I think my friend caught just 2. I was excited about the day because I thought the conditions were perfect to catch fish shallow and on the bank. I could not make that work. 4 of the 5 fish I caught were in 25-30 feet of water. I found a huge school of bass but they just wouldn't eat. We caught a few out of there but the spot was loaded. The school was on the deep side of a main lake point where one side of the point was a gradual slope and the other dropped steeply off into the river channel. I fished the bank a lot with mostly a Topwater with only 2 blowups and caught one small bass flipping a piece of cover. I was very surprised with the cold nights that the water was still in the 60's.

I fished the Steam Plant yesterday morning with no success. It was a cold overcast morning with snow flurries. The main lake water temp was 51 and tge water temp at the barrier was 61. It seemed like a perfect morning. I arrived right at daylight. There was lots of bait at the mouth of the canal leading in but not much back in the canal. I did have a fish hammer a crankbait but no hookup. I didn't stay too long because of the lack of bait and a couple people were fishing at the entrance by the time I made it back out. I didn't see any surface activity beyond the barrier. It's just barely to early I think.
