TIPS & TACTICS
The reservoir has a dense population of gizzard shad, which is the primary prey for largemouth bass. Your presentation must compete with this natural food base, so accurate casts and a sensitive touch are needed. Try pitching plastic worms into holes in the cattails or floating worms along structure in the mornings. Suspending baits are a good option for keeping your bait in the strike zone longer. Stripers can be caught by downrigging 4-inch white plastic grubs or with live bait. Catfish anglers using cut bait have also been successful at taking stripers. Be aware that the reservoir develops a strong thermocline during the summer so fish will remain in the upper, oxygenated levels during this time. Crappie are effectively caught by noodling live bait along the shoreline in openings in the cattails. Bank anglers can access many of these crappie areas by using an 8-10 ft cane pole and reaching out over the dense shoreline cover.
