  Bass Fishing

Bass fishing has been slow. Fishing has been slow with the higher temperatures. Most fish are coming from deep water road beds and humps, when current is present. Use Carolina rigs and shaky heads worked slowly. When generation is at its strongest and bait is present use deep diving crankbaits in shad patterns. My best colors have been watermelon and green pumpkin when using a Carolina rig and deep crankbaits in a shad pattern. There is an early morning topwater bite on schooling fish before the sun tops the trees on schooling fish. For these fish use popping cork and fly. The best locations for these schooling fish have been on the southern end of the lake, south of Wehadkee creek.


Hybrid and Striper fishing is fair to good. Fish are schooling lake wide over the tops of humps and road beds following shad on the surface. The action will be fast so use fast moving shad imitating baits. Use ounce rattle traps and Pop-Rs. Work baits quickly to resemble fleeing shad. Once topwater action slows use live bait over the same humps and road beds that produced with topwater earlier in the morning. The best locations are on the southern end of the lake.


Crappie fishing has been fair. Fish have not moved much over the last few weeks and do not look for other major movements until temperatures begin entering a fall pattern. Fish have fully committed to deeper water. Look for deep brushpiles near main lake during day time hours. Best fishing has come from bridge pilings at night. Down line live bait twelve to fifteen feet deep.
