I been going to Rend for about 10 years. From May 1 to but end of May is a geat time. The problem is water level. I like to see it about 409 - 412 feet up. Its at 408 right now. I,m hoping with the rain there getting it will be up there this way you can fish for the crappie in the buck brush using long poles. I don't know if you ever fish like this before but if you havn't you should get a guide because the crappie will be on deep water cover. I have a phone # of a great guide down there.
Funny I will be down there on the same day. See ya down there.
Tight lines.

There is a web site with a fishing report at www.rendlake.com. They haven't updated it since April 11 but hoping they will update before I go.

I went up there last year around april 20th and we only caught a few crappies. I talked to the locals out there and they told me that april 1st is the time to come for crappies. lets hope we get them at the right time! Lance

Water level is still around 408. Still like it to be little higher. Looks like they are going to have rain tonight and tomarrow. Hoping this will bring it up a bit more. They finally updated the fishing report. Water temp. is 58F.
They rating the crappie as good right now. The full moon should of started bring them in. The best bait is minnows or jig heads tipped with minnows.
