Topwater baits are coming into their own on this lake, where largemouth bass may be taken almost at will early and late in the day. The bass are active in shallow water on main lake points.

Midlake, fish the shallow back ends of coves. Try a Zoom Horny Toad or Spro frog adjacent to the vegetation along the bank. Make sure the water along the shorline is less than two feet deep with the sun shining on the shoreline.

Lots of big bass are cruising these areas looking for bedding sites. Fish plastic grubs on most points in 4-8 feet of water and spinnerbaits on WINDY points. Those bass that have left the beds are orienting to boat docks, where plastic worms are taking their toll.

Good fishing may also be had in the creeks off the main river channel above the Eaton Ferry Bridge. Striper action is good around the I-85 and Route 1 Bridges.

Crappie are biting well.

Bream are schooling, with crickets doing the job.
