Bass are starting to be caught in better numbers as fish
continue to move to shallow water with the warmer days. Numerous
brush piles were added during 2015 that provide quality habitat.
This structure may be found at depths from 6 - 20 ft and at
multiple locations. Swim baits and spinner baits are reported to be
working well recently this time of the year. With the
warmer days fish should be located along the rocks at the dam
or at the north end of the lake around structure as well as in
the shallows. Plastic worms fished slowly in these areas
should produce some nice fish. There are no current reports at this
Bream can be targeted around structure in 8 - 12 ft. of water.
Tightlining with crickets or worms should be
the best method this time of year. There are no
current reports at this time.
Deep structure along the old road bed and in the cove to
the left of the dam should be holding crappie this time of
year. Fishing vertical with jigs and nibbles or trolling
with minnows or jigs should prove to
be productive. GPS coordinates for numerous deep water
structures that were added in 2015 are listed below. The
catch pictured below was taken off one of the brush piles in 8 to
12 feet of water recently.
Target catfish in 8 - 12 ft of water where structure is present.
Liver, worms or minnows fished on the bottom are the most popular
methods this time of year. There are no current reports
at this time.
