TIPS & TACTICS
Anglers fishing for largemouth
and spotted bass
will do best in the spring, fall, and winter. Crawdad-colored crankbaits and chartreuse/white spinners can produce nice fish along rocky banks and mainlake points. Worm fishing along timber and brush will produce some big bass in the spring. The lake is full of small spotted bass that are fun to catch on small tubes or small craw worms. Look for crappie
in the timber just after the spawn in late spring to early summer. They go deep in warm or cold weather. Boat houses also produce crappie fished with jigs or minnows. Channel catfish
are caught best on punch baits or other stink baits.
FISHING COVER / STRUCTURE
There is standing timber in the upper part of both creek arms and about 150 acres of submersed aquatic vegetation. There are submerged creek channels, humps, and a standing bridge along with scattered boat houses.
Some cattail, floating pondweed, hydrilla and coontail.
