BASS

Bass catches have slowed up with the recent cooler temps and heavy rainfall. 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. The spawn is starting to wind down, but there will be a few late spawners in the shallow water.  Fish at different depths to target fish as they transition out of the spawning areas.

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.  The bream bite should improve with the coming warmer weather.  There are no current reports at this time.

CRAPPIE 

The crappie spawn should also be winding down as well. Deep structure along the old road bed and in the cove to the left of the dam should start holding some fish.  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. The table full below was recently taken from deep water.

CATFISH

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.
