Bass should be targeted around brush piles or deep points
that contain structure or sudden contour change. Crank baits or
soft plastics fished slowly in these areas should be good choices
for lures. Fish may also be found around creek ledges where
structure may be present. Try fishing the outside edges of
the fish attractors. Some fish are starting to move up preparing to
bed but the bite has been slow.
Try crappie along creek channels and deep structure
with jigs or minnows. Open water out from the dam should be
a good area to target fish. Numerous brush piles
were added in this area during January 2016. There
are no current reports at this time.
Tight lining for bream with red worms and crickets at
depths of 8 - 10 ft can be very productive and one of the
best places is from the road to the campground. Another good
place is the pier on the campgrund road casting near the dead tree
out from the pier. There are no current reports at this
Catfish can be targeted in deeper water along creek channels
that contain some type of structure. Liver, worms, or minnows
fished along the bottom can be productive late in the year.
There are no current reports at this time.
