Wind out of the east the last 3 days has the water blown into the river, so levels are up a bit. Target the faster water for those white bass. Button wood, Davis over look, Jerome rd rapids and Bluegrass island are the hot spots right now. White bass, and catfish are hitting well.

Spring Crappie-

The typical spring crappie approach is not real complicated. You head for the backs of river and creek arms, anchor, and drop some minnows in sunken brushpiles, waiting for finicky spawning crappies to bite. In early spring, crappies move into shallow, protected areas searching for warmer water. In natural lakes, you’ll generally find them in dark-bottomed bays and boat channels,in big rivers, look for them in shallow, weedy or brushy backwater areas. 

I’ve had good success with a small spin-rig (a tiny unskirted spinnerbait) tipped with a minnow. A weedless jig head (about one-sixteenth-ounce) tipped with a minnow is also good.

Once you locate a pocket of crappies, you may want to switch to a slip-bobber/minnow rig. You can tempt some fish with a fast-moving bait, but few crappies can resist a lively minnow wiggling in their faces.
