FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE

Structure in the reservoir is primarily rock and flooded timber. The lake is very narrow and the shoreline is very steep. There are small areas of aquatic vegetation in some of the coves.


TIPS & TACTICS

Largemouth bass can be caught on a wide variety of baits depending on season and water conditions. The best season for bass fishing is spring when water temperatures reach about 55-60 degrees. Common fishing lures include plastic worms, spinner baits and crank baits. There is ample habitat around the lake so anglers have a lot of area to choose from. The lake gets a lot of fishing pressure, especially during the weekends in spring and summer. Most of the spotted bass are located near the dam. To distinguish spotted bass from largemouth bass you need to hold the mouth closed and look at how far back it reaches. If the mouth goes past the orbit of the eye, the fish is a largemouth. If it reaches to the center of the eye it is a spotted bass. Good catches of crappie are frequently found around the fishing pier and in flooded timber in the arms of the reservoir in the spring and fall. Crappie are best caught with jigs or minnows vertically fished around structure.
