Striped Bass: Still random boils popping up throughout the day, plenty of baitfish in the water. Some private boaters reporting a good bite by trolling the main lake. Many renters having success on the chicken liver mainly at the dam but most landed fish are a smaller grade.

Bluegill: Anglers having mixed results throughout the lake. Some reporting a very slow bite whole others in different areas being able to fill their cooler in a short amount of time. We recommend purchasing crickets outside of the park.

Catfish: Bite still holding strong, shore anglers having mixed success rates near ramp 2 and Catfish Alley. Boaters have been enjoying a good bite near the inlet on liver and shrimp have also been good options.

Largemouth Bass: Some fun topwater action to be had. There is a lot of anti in the water and some anglers have been going wide open on small flashy swimmers or other plastics with an underpin. Umbrella rigs have also been a good way to fish.

Trout: No Action

Carp: No action to be reported.
