Striped Bass: The striper bite has picked up & remained steady with boils. If you prefer to target this species we suggest using deeper diving hard baits or even trolling throughout the lake in hopes to connect to one of these beauties. Also the dam and inlet area are the hot spots. Cut anchovies have also been working great!

Bluegill: Bluegill has been medium action. Very possible to break wide open in the right spot fishing with mealworms or crickets, and night crawlers ( pieces). Use a small bb split shot and what for the strike on the fall!

Catfish: The catfish bite has picked up this past week! Catches being reported near the inlet/dam area and over by Catfish alley launch ramp 2. Use chicken liver or anchovies for best results or any other cut bait.

Largemouth Bass: Largemouth bass has been on the slower side this past week. A few regulars have reported decent jerk bait fishing. Another successful bait and recent has been the good ole senko.

Trout: No trout
