BASS

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 time.

BREAM

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.

CRAPPIE 

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.
