Ron Wong (www.lroutdoors.com) told us, "Sardis Lake is currently being drawn down to winter pool. The upper end of the lake is very low, so exercise caution when navigating from Holiday Lodge going east. White bass will continue to be excellent on south side main lake points to the dam. Best to use a Strike King series 3 shad color crank bait or a 1/4-ounce Peanut Craft Lure jig head with a 3-inch curl tail grub. Crappie can be caught by spider rigging a Capps/Coleman double minnow rig or vertical jigging a 1/8th ounce Bobby Garland jig with a chartreuse colored Slab Slayer. Best to spider rig from the mouth of Thompson creek to the face of the dam with rigs 10-12 feet deep. For vertical jigging, fish the wood along the river channel in front of Coon Tail Landing. Bass can be caught from the mouth of Clear creek to Thompson creek along the river channel using a Strike King black/blue Premier Pro-model jig tipped with a Rage craw or Rage Tail Menace. Slow rolling a 1/2-ounce Strike King Red Eye Shad or Rat-L-Trap in Silver/Blue back color will also catch bass especially on the points. Catfish will be good using cut shad or shrimp around Engineers Point on the bottom.""
