Rend lake fishing report update.
Recent warm days and rain has opened up part of the main lake. Crappie are being caught under the 154 bridge outside the sailboat harbor boat ramp and off the wall at the sailboat harbor boat ramp. With or without a boat you can catch crappiei right now. If in a boat fishing under the 154 bridge, fish 10-16 foot deep using a jig with some sort of chartreuse color combination. My favorite is red and chartreuse. If fishing from the wall use the same jig just fish shallower because the water will not be as deep. There will be other fisherman around. Watch them to see how deep they are when catching fish.

Hey Clint thanks for the report. Most people around here have taken a break from crappie fishingi and it sure is good to get a crappiei report to see there are still some being caught. I plan on getting back on the water in a couple of weeks.

A flat is just as it sounds. This is an area of shallow water that has no defined drop into deeper water. The water depth is uniform or gets deeper very gradually. Flats can be found at the backs of all the bays, in coves within the bays and on the main lake where the flat land adjacent to the river was covered up by water when the rivers were backed up by damming.
