Cover and stucture are limited due to very low water levels. Most structure is limited to rock outcrops in the lower reservoir. Be cautious when navigating the reservoir. It may look wide open in the upper portions, but the water is very shallow and has occasional stumps and rocks.
Low water levels and turbid water make fishing a challenge. Focus efforts on the cover and structure available in the lower reservoir.
