We went to Brownlee (Reservoir) 6/18 and caught a lot of crappie and small non keeper Bass. Reservoir is full. Crappie were fairly aggressive on their bite.
Thanks. We've had many recent reports of 8-10" crappie being caught in about 20' of water. Evidently, they are beginning to feed after an early spawn. This bodes well for crappie fishing in Brownlee next spring. We would anticipate 2"+ of growth if conditions are right. Bass populations and size structure in Brownlee are cyclic. We will go several years with an abundance of 11 3/4" bass and all of the sudden they grow to 15 - 16" in a single year. More than likely in response to a change in forage. DP
