Ive never fished Hodges. How is the Bass fishing there over all?

It used to be world class...Then the powers to be started fluctuating the water level in the spring...They also declared that the dam wasn't earthquake proof enough...So now they transfer water out to keep the lake at a much lower level...Last year they lowered the lake 3-5 right during the spawn...Killing a hold years worth of recruitment...:mad:

Still produces some good fish though...7-1-20
