Striped Bass: As always most bites are coming to anglers who fish chicken liver over near the inlet and dam. Some anglers have also been fishing Umbrella Rigs with mentionable success.

Bluegill: Use crickets or mealworms throughout the lake. Sometimes it is best to fly line these baits, otherwise a drop shot can be effective. Sometimes the fish will readily eat a small Kastmaster or Panther Martin.

Catfish: Chicken liver or other cut baits have been most effective for cats. Some anglers have had decent success with fishing nightcralwers. Ramp 2 as always is the best area.

Largemouth Bass: Try fishing topwater! Some days have been exceptional while others quite slow. When fishing is slow we suggest switching up to a drop shot worm or weightless seiko.

Trout: No Action

Carp: No action to be reported.
