Water levels on Wheeler are actually slightly above normal for this time of year according to the data from lakeinfo.tva.gov. The raising up to summer pool starts approximatley on March 15, but it is usually slow unless we get a large amount of rain.
I always loved fishing for crappie while the water was down low on Wheeler as it still is now. The fish are more concentrated due to the lower levels and, IMO, easier to catch. One exception is that they have had plenty to eat and still have plenty to eat, so that can make them a little picky.
However, I haven't been out there, so I am only talking about my past experience. I did spend over 6 years with crappie fishing as my main and nearly only pursuit, but even with that it is hard to predict patterns now without the time to be out there after them day in/day out.
Good luck and good fishin'
