Possum Kingdom:GOOD. Water lightly stained; 50-54 degrees; 1.56 feet low. Striped bass are fair scattered from midlake to the north end on deadstick flukes in chartreuse, silver, and white. White bass are very hit or miss and should be moving up into the creeks to spawn soon. Catfish are good on cut shad in shallow water fished on bottom. Report provided by TJ Ranft, Ranft Guide Service. Striped bass are slow, but can be caught in 25-89 feet of water near the bottom on the north end of the lake. Soft plastics with a heavy weight to help sink it lower seems to do the trick, but be careful not to get hung up in the trees while slow trolling at 0.3-1.5 mph in the main river channel. These fish are holding deep so deadsticking with white or chartreuse will work best along with slabs. Report provided by Kraig Sexton, Sexton’s Guide Service LLC.
