My dad and my uncle told me some stories about this place.They used to fish it back in the mid 80`s.They would say it was nothing to catch 50 - 100 largemouths,nothing smaller then 2 lbs,some in the 6 - 7 lb. range.The strippers  ( wipers ). were common also in the 10 - 15 lb. range.Back then i believe there were very strict limits on game fish but not sure.I was told that on any given day there would be 20 cars in the lot and 50 + people fishing,mostly panfish.

Lake is in bad shape, fraction of its former self. Small cats, very few bass. We fished a hard 6 hrs and caught one drum. Wish  DNR would restock hybrids and LM bass. Water cold and little dirty. 57 at launch

So what's up with this lake these days? It used to be a good place to catch bass during the winter. Just wondering if the LM and SM fishing is worth a visit?

The bass in Columbia have taken over the title of fish of 10,000 casts.  I would say if you put in a whole week fishing 8 hrs a day you make just get a crack at one.

Fished for a couple hours late morning with worms on the bottom while casting spinners. Tiny catfish everywhere. Nothing else biting. Managed one 17 inch cat, nothing else was more than half that size. Couple other people out, didn't see any bass landed.

Just found out about Columbia and was looking for any info on how the fishing is doing, it seems the reviews are very mixed. I'm mainly looking for information on the bass populations (wipers, smallie, and largemouth). Also some pictures show boats but I don't really see a spot to launch anywhere. Any information helps. PM me please. tight lines - Rippin'
