C.J. Brown Reservoir: Anglers are catching crappies in both shallow and deep water. While there are plenty found in 4-5 foot depths, most of the large females have moved to areas 15-17 feet deep. The marina is a good spot, but so are the sunken brush piles. For walleyes, try trolling with a crawler harness over the humps and old roadbed. White bass are biting on inline spinners and minnows. Bluegills are on the beds, hitting waxworms and red worms. Catfish are biting on chicken liver, blood baits and nightcrawlers. A few anglers are catching largemouth bass in the coves on spinnerbaits and plastics.
