Black Bass: Bass action continues to be good for anglers fishing plastic worms, spinner baits and shallow running crank baits in the backs of creeks and coves such as boat docks, rocks or stumps and laydowns. Water temperatures get a bit warmer in these areas and they are searching out nest sights to spawn.
Crappie: Decent numbers of crappie are caught along the pilings of the 1097 Bridge and around brush in 15” – 25” depths. Also the Stubblefield Bridge on the far north end of the lake is holding good slabs of crappie as well. Minnows and jigs are both good bait choices.
White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass: At this time, these fish usually hold along the drop offs of submerged humps and points in the main lake areas. Slab spoons bounced along the bottom or trolling small pet spoons in these areas are great methods in locating and catching these strong fighting fish and they are good eating as well.
Catfish: Your best catfish action can be by baiting up areas along creek and river channels with sour grain or range cubes and fishing either chicken livers, shrimp or dip baits near the bottom in 15’ – 25’ depths. Also fishing under the 1097 Bridge is another great catfishing area this time of year.
