ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Channel catfish are the most sought-after species followed by hybrid striped bass, red drum and largemouth bass.
TIPS & TACTICS
The peak fishing period for channel catfish is March through May, although they are harvested year round. Best baits include stinkbaits, tilapia, chicken liver and shad. March through August are great months to catch the red drum. Crawfish and tilapia are very good natural baits, while good artificials include gold and silver spoons and rattletraps. The extended period of January thru August is a good time to catch hybrid striped bass with the peak occurring March thru May. Good natural baits include chicken liver, sunfish and shad, while good artificials include spoons and rattle traps. The best time to catch largemouth bass is in spring with the peak being March thru May. The fish are found concentrated in the bulrush and along the rip-rap found at the dam and intake point. The majority of largemouth bass are harvested with artificial lures such as plastic worms, crank baits and spinner baits.
