Striped Bass:  Fishing Report Similar to last week however, The striper bite has picked up a bit. Cut baits have been working best this past weekend. Best Bite is still early morning hours throughout the lake.

Blue Gills: High Action for Blue Gill using mealworms or crickets. Mini jigs tipped with worms or crickets. Also, use a small bb split shot and wait for the strike on the fall!

Catfish: Catfish is still very slow this past week.. The lake's water level is very high still so the current has slowed near the inlet allowing for better catfishing. Use chicken liver, mackerel, or anchovies for best results.

Largemouth Bass: Largemouth Bass have also picked up a bit. Some Anglers have reported a pretty decent bite again throughout the lake using Roboworms. 

Trout : Stockings are back to regular scheduled dates, being every other week. For best results try to come target trout as soon as possible after a delivery of fresh fish. Next Trout Stock is February 19th, 2020.
