Weiss Lake Conditions and Weather Forecast - Feb. 14, 2018

We have had a lot of rain over the past week, and most of Weiss Lake and it's creeks, bays, and rivers are muddy or heavily stained.  Some rain is still forecast for the next 5 days, but nothing heavy; just a 20%  to 50% chance each day.  Maybe 1" of rain over the next 5 days total.

Water level reached full pool due to rain and runoff, and may rise a little more.  You can still find some fishable waters in Yellow Creek and Bay Springs.  Water temps in the high 40s to low 50s.

Long line trolling with Southern Pro Hot grubs in dark or bright colors;  try  popsicle, black & chart.,
red & chart., blue- black & chart. & bubblegum & chart.    Also, Jiffy Jigs in similar colors. 
Tight lining minnows will also work.  Stained water is OK, but not muddy.   8 to 12 ft. deep, so use 1/24  or  1/16 jig heads.   Boat speed  -  .7 to .9 mph

Air temps are forecast to be in the 60s and 70s during the day, and 40s at night.  Get out the rain suits and go catch some good crappie,  prime time could begin any day now.
