Crappie action is excellent with fish in the 1-2 pound class being taken on small minnows, fished around solid structures and submerged bushes, 12-14 feet down.
Bass fishing is slow, with no apparent pattern. Crankbaits and plastic worms are the baits of choice. Most of the fish are found around concentrations of shad. Slowly work plastic worms or grubs in 4-8 feet of water wherever you find shad.
Best areas seem to be around creek channels that drop to 7-8 feet.
Live bait is particularly good for stripers from the Route 85 Bridge to Gaston Dam.
