It has been a very poor year on Brownlee reservoir fishing for Crappie it was up-and-down like a yo-yo in one day you would catch a few and the next day you would not catch nothing and that's the way it's been all season very low numbers on crappie smallmouth bass fishing has been excellent all the season hopefully next season will be better if they leave the water alone and keep it full pool I think our numbers will come back in crappie it is so sad to see such a wonderful fishery for Crappie that has gone downhill in Brownlee .
