Rainbow Trout are 20-30 feet down and are being caught on a Carolina rig with cheese or worms. Patience is key. The crappie are biting about 10 to 15 feet under the surface of the water. They favor shady areas. With the cooler weathers, the top water bass action is very exciting in the mornings. Catfish are caught off the bottom in muddy areas using catfish dough or mackerel for bait. Bluegill & Redear come up on small bait on a floater. Also, they are usually caught while jigging for crappie. We are at about 35% capacity here at the lake with about 90ft. of water at Bradbury Dam. Still plenty of water for great fishing! Come visit our bait shop for any tackle and bait you may need. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to tell you where the fihs are biting and even help you set up your fishing pole and rig! We have live bait for sale as well as coffee and snacks!
