Forecast Contributor Billy Wheat, Follow on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/riprapfishingadventures and www.riprapfishing.netThe water level on Watts Bar is 737 but remember when the dams are spilling you will experience higher water as you go up towards the dams and a much greater amount of current. The square bills in crawfish pattern are good along with a medium running crankbait such as a DT6 or Flat side crankbait. These are used around chunk rock banks and laydowns on or adjacent to the main channel. The water is stained but getting in the high 40s to low 50s. The jig in a crawfish pattern works if you can have the patience to fish it. Always have the FFS baits on the deck as you fish just in case the opportunity arises. As the water clears in the back of the bays and warms watch for the bass to move to gravel bars and drains. If grass is found the Chatterbait and Spinnerbait can be awesome.
