Bass fishing is excellent early and late in the day.
Plastic worms and lizards are the most productive baits on boat docks, while topwaters work best early and late on points. After the sun gets up, fish crankbaits and plastic worms or lizards on stumpy points.
Bass are also present in the willow grass on points in the upper end of the lake. Plastic frogs, Senkos and jig ‘n pig are taking the better fish.
Crappie fishing is slow. Crickets are responsible for good stringers of bream.
The number one catch throughout the lake is catfish. Cut bait, nightcrawlers, chicken livers and live minnows are the preferred baits.
Stripers are being caught on trolled Cordell Redfins near the Eaton Ferry Bridge and in front of the dam.
