John Martin Reservoir

The reservoir is currently around 75 degrees with about 4 feet of visibility. The reservoir is rising and almost full, but anglers are reporting a green tint to the water. Anglers are catching their fair share of white bass on crank baits and soft baits. The fish are averaging small in size, but anglers are catching bigger fish in the deeper depths of the reservoir.
