BASS

Bass should be targeted along the creek channel around deep structure and along the dam as well as the shallow water back in the coves.   New structure was added during January of this year and should be good spots to fish this spring.  Crank baits and spinner baits are popular lures this time of year.  Yearling bass continue biting good on various artifical baits and jigs around structure in 6 - 8 ft of water.  The creel limit on bass has been raised to 30 per person per day.  Several nice bass have been caught over the last week.

BREAM

Bream should be targeted at depths of 5 - 8 ft around brush piles or creek channels with crickets or red worms. The bite still continues to be a little slow, with reports of a few bluegill being caught on crickets in 5 to 8 ft of water.  This should change soon with the warmer weather coming to stay.

CRAPPIE

Crappie can be targeted around creek ledges and deep structure. Fish attractor buoys can be good places to try as well.  Minnows or jigs fished vertically or trolled in these areas may produce some luck.  Live minnows continue to be the bait for best results.

 

CATFISH

Catfish should be targeted at depths of 8 - 10 ft along creek ledges and deep structure.  Chicken liver or worms should be good choices for bait.  There are no current reports at this time.
