FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE

ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Largemouth bass is the most popular sportfish and this reservoir has has produced trophy fish in the past. The quality of the crappie fishery is sporadic but occasionally good. Blue and channel catfish have been stocked, but are generally uncommon.
TIPS & TACTICS
Largemouth bass in the spring can be caught shallow along shorelines with overhanging brush and reeds with soft-plastics, jigs, and creature baits. In the summer, as bass move to deeper water, Carolina-rigged soft-plastics presented close to the bottom can be productive. Crappie can be found in the shallows spawning in the early spring. During the rest of the year, crappie will shadow schools of shad in the main lake. Using sonar to locate brush piles and/or schools of shad will often lead you to nearby crappie. Try using small hand-tied jigs and minnows for crappie.
