FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Hydrilla north of the Highway 34 bridge offers good access to largemouth bass. Best structure is along the face of the dam. The upper end of the lake is highly silted and shallow and is only accessible during high water.
ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
With the increase in vegetation (hydrilla) in the upper end, fishing for largemouth bass has improved. Catfishes and open water species such as white bass and hybrid stripers are very good. Hybrids are stocked on an annual basis and have provided an excellent fishery; however, no one has registered a lake record yet. Downriggers can provide hybrid striper action during warm months, watch for schooling birds during cooler weather.
TIPS & TACTICS
Live bait (for catfishes and crappie) and noise making baits (for white bass and hybrid stripers) seem to work best. Good eating, too.
