BASS

Some bass are starting to move towards the shallows while others are still being caught within channels and off points. Try fishing with top water lures and soft plastic lures in these areas.

BREAM

Fishing along the dam in water of about 6 - 8 ft with crickets and worms may produce some success.

CRAPPIE

Crappie have been caught along the dam in recent weeks. Try using minnows and jigs around this area.

Tight-lining on the bottom with liver, worms or blood baits should be the best method for harvesting catfish during the spring season.
