Striped Bass: Try chicken liver or other cut baits near the dam and inlet. Always keep an eye out for boiling school. Use top water lures or jerk baits for foaming fish. Trolling can also be a very productive tactic. 

Bluegill: We recommend bringing crickets and fly lining them in the east end. Another excellent bait is a whole mealworm or piece of nightcrawler. 

Catfish: Use chicken liver or other cut baits near the inlet if you have access, or the same baits all over the Ramp 2 area. It is fairly easy to have a productive day fishing for cats. 

Largemouth Bass: Definitely the most popular bite as of late. Drop shooting a worm can be a great choice as well as looking for that top water blow up in the morning. 

Trout: No Action

Carp : No Action
