This lake is typically a very clear lake. The crappie & bass fishing used to be very good. Strip bass have been illigally introduced & have taken over. You can catch the Stripbass with ease. They are small, 7 to 10in. Catch/keep/kill all the stripbass you want. The crappie fishing can still be good at times. The bass tend to be big & fisty. The shoreline isn't overly accessable. But there is a nice boat ramp. It costs around $3 to launch a boat.
