As of Monday, the discharge was 172 CFS with one gate open 0.4 feet. Bass are in typical seasonal summer routines on Millwood and are steadily improving their appetites, early and late in the day. The best bite over the past few weeks range from sunrise until 10 or 11 a.m., and then again between 6 and 8 p.m. The best bass bite has been on weightless trick worms or wacky rigs in junebug, grasshopper, or kiwi colors.

Medium-running-depth crankbaits like the Deep Little N's in chrome/blue color, and Bomber or Excalibur cranks in brown back/orange belly crawfish or citrus shad colors and patterns are still taking some keeper-sized bass in the 3-6 pound class. Once the sun gets high, the best bass option is to switch to a 10-inch worm in Black, Blue Fleck, Peanut Butter 'n Jelly, or Plum; try pitching or flipping stumps, cypress trees, and laydown tree trunks near deep water. Major or secondary points in the Little River are holding good numbers of bass willing to bite almost anything; they are near deep vertical drops or creek mouths adjacent to deeper water. The white bass bite is slow. Crappie have improved on Blakemore roadrunners, Southern Pro Crappie Tubes and live shiners in oxbows close to cypress trees in 17 to 25-feet depths or in deep creek channels with cypress knees or stumps or in planted brush piles along the Little River. Catfish continue to bite well on cut shad, hot dogs, Charlie and chicken liver on yo-yos hung from cypress trees in oxbows over 8 to 12-inch depths and on trotlines in the river.
