Striped Bass: Many anglers choosing to soak bait down at the inlet have had mixed results. Some reporting only smaller grade stripers being taken while others have had much better things to say. Sardines, anchovies and night crawlers have been working best!

Bluegill: Slow action for bluegill this past week. Can always put a few on the deck by using any type of worm or cricket. Tip a mini jig for best results.

Catfish: Catfish have slowed way down, however first stock of catfish was May 7th, second stock will be May 21st so they should be picking up soon. Use chicken liver, anchovies, mackerel or chicken liver on the bottom throughout the lake but especially near Ramp 2 or the inlet area.

Largemouth Bass: Slow action for these largemouth, still some to be had, must have lots of patients sit & wait game. Ika’s and ned rigs have been very effective the last few days. Many people reporting cruising thorughout the lake.

Trout: No action, last stock fo trout plants was March 23rd do the trout season is over.

Carp: No action
