I won't waste your time, if you want Crappie anyway. According to USGS today the lake is about 1/2% and yes, about 12' in the deepest spot by the dam. Launching will be a tough and navigating on the water is just plain dangerous. Please the flatheads are probably eating everything they see. I'd try Bartlett instead. There have been some Crappie being caught including some real lunkers. I may go Friday.
