My wife and I were camping at Chico about a week ago. No one was catching due to high and dirty water from that last big rain storm. We managed to catch a few nice Lake Runners and a few perch, no bass. Left Chicot and went to Lake Bistineau 3 hrs NW. Every creek, river ,spillway, and lake from Chico to Bistineau was way out of its banks looked like a mud bath. Bistineau was 4\' above normal and looked like the Mississippi River. Fishing was not good. Canceled two days of camping and returned to Chico for 2 days. One day of fishing we managed 16 sizable Lake Runners 5 nice perch and 2 White Perch, still no bass. Things may have cleared up by now since the rain let up.

We went on Memorial day and had a nice little trip. We kept 22 Sacalait, Redear and bluegill. It was nice to fish in the shade. I was surprised there weren't more people.

I fished a 1/32 oz jig head with 2'' twister tail black and blue with a chartreuse tail 18'' under a cork. My wife was fishing with live worms and crickets, She did best on the worms, Crickets are 10 cents each up there, unreal. Bring your own.
