BASS

Bass bite has slowed down a little over the last week. Crank baits and spinner baits are popular lures as well as silver flukes.  Some success has been reported using top water baits.  The creel limit on bass has been raised to 30 per person per day.   Just a few catches were reported over the last week.  The lake managers says the bass seem to be bigger this year.

BREAM

Bream bite continues going good over the past, with some nice bluegill being caught off the main fishing pier near the new gravel beds.  Bream should be targeted at depths of 3 - 6 ft around brush piles or creek channels with crickets or red worms.

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. No reports at this time.

 

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.  Seeing some good catches over the last week, with most being taken from the creek channel near the bridge in the upper end of the lake.  There are some nice sized fish out there to be caught.
