Quote(s) of the Day: Lake is looking good

Fishing Highlights:

The lake is starting to warm up and fish are on the feed. Stripping small buggers and leeches are getting the most action. Fish are eating some dries early and late in the day when the lake is calm. Pactolus lake is a great option during runoff.

The fishing is good.  Overcast skies and 44-47 degree weather. The water temperature was between 40-43 degrees and Slightly Off.
