Striped Bass: Some boils are still being reported after hours, unfortunately they have been pretty short. Most anglers have been having more success by using fly lined chicken livers. Some fish are being taken on top water lures as well.

Bluegill: Not much news to be reported. As usual the most effective baits are worms, mealworms, and crickets. Tip a jog or even drop shot.

Catfish: Another solid week of cat fishing. Large numbers of quality fish being reported on just about all bait types throughout the lake. As usual a good place to start in near the inlet.

Largemouth Bass: Real and artificial worms have been working well. There is quite a bit of baitfish in the water so another good tactic would be to se a small swimbait that closely matches the hatch.
