Striped Bass: The usual tactics are still the most productive. Water level is extremely low. A method would be trolling a hard bait throughout the lake, especially main lake.

Bluegill: Similar to last week. Mini jigs tipped with a mealworm or nightcrawler are usually most productive, You can also try to fly line a mealworm with light line.

Catfish: use chicken liver, anchovies, mackerel or nightcrawler on the bottom throughout the lake but especially near Ramp 2 or the inlet area.

Largemouth Bass: Slow action, water level oil low. Bass have definitely begun to move up shallow.

Trout: Last stock day was March 2nd. Come out as soon as possible after the sock and throw your favorite mini jig or color of powerboat!

Carp: No action to be reported.
