Bass fishing is good, with a couple of anglers catching good numbers last week. Largemouth bass can be caught on soft plastics. Try junebug, tequila sunrise or red shad colored lures. Target main lake points, brush piles, and structure along the levee in deep water. Harvest of small bass is encouraged at this lake.
Bream fishing hasn't changed; it is fair, with a few being caught. Bream can be caught with crickets and worms around brushtops in 5-10 feet of water. Tight lining with redworms is a good way to catch redear sunfish.
Currently, there are no reports on catfishing. Catfish are usually good on the shallower flats and points. Try worms or liver fished on the bottom.
Crappie fishing has been hit and miss lately. Try using minnows or various colored jigs in 8-10 feet of water. Target deep water brush piles along the dam and main lake points too.
