At Falls Lake (hen there is water), the fishing access on Old Weaver Trail between New Light Rd. and Hwy 50 is a very good spot for Crappie. That's the spot I fish the most....mainly cause I live there ;)

i keep hearing that lots of slab crappie are coming from hickory hill boat ramp by the dump, but i havent seen anything; but it was about this time last year that the crappie and catfish started hitting at the falls dam and right downstream of the dam (a couple yards from the bridge to be exact)

I've heard they can be caught in submerged brush anywhere from 12 to 25 feet deep, but I haven't gotten on to any since November. Although I have been finding several brush piles that should hold crappie in the spring and summer (hopefully!).

I have noticed from some of the area bridges (on my many trips to the hospital) that there are some spots that I want to return to when the water levels return to normal. Some places have way more structure than I had thought. With the lake level down so low, might not be a bad idea to get out and scout where the brush piles are, especially in some of the coves. Just watch out for stumps.

I see people on the piers all the time. In the past, we would take used Christmas trees and recycle them into crappie habitat (use a cinder block to sink them) around the piers -- This is also why we don't allow people to jump off the piers, aside from it scaring the fish off. Sometimes, not all the trees made it to the piers...I mean, us rangers have our own "fishin' spots" too ya know :eek:
