Striped Bass: Chicken liver bait is bite is sill going strong with many fish being hooked near the dam and inlet. Surprisingly the boils have picked up over in the East end almost every evening although by the time they start, boats are due back. Many schoolies are bing caught on umbrella rigs as well. 

Bluegill: Just this week solid reports began pouring in from rental boats that tied in good numbers of high quality panfish. Jigging or fly lining a worm is a very productive way to fish. 

Catfish: may large fish have been caught at the inlet. Some pushing double digit numbers. 

Largemouth Bass: A few lakes staffers have gone out lately and were able to tie into quality bass. Some topwater action but mostly plastic worms and soft plastic swimsuits with underpins. 

Trout: No Action

Carp: No Action
