|Species||Rating||Size||Baits, Method, and Location|
|Channel Catfish||Good||16 - 21"||Channel Cats are being caught on dip bait, and cut bait throughout the reservoir. Many from 1 to 4 lbs. Look for them shallow at night and try deeper humps and river channel areas throughout the day.|
|Crappie||Good||10 to 14 inches||Few reports of crappies but some are still being caught on brush piles. Try live minnows or 1/16 and 1/32 oz. jigs with curly-tailed grubs or other small soft baits.|
|Trout||No reports. The trout season is over until next year.|
|Saugeye||Fair||14 - 22"||Fair. The Saugeye bite has picked up and keepers are accounting for 1/3 of the angler catch. Some are still being caught along the river channel breaks in the early morning and late evening. Try deep jerkbaits and chartreuse jigs tipped with earthworms.|
|White Bass||Good||All sizes - up to 17 inches||Good. Folks are catching a lot of whites in the reservoir on humps and structure near the river channel. Try areas from 8-14 feet in depth along the river channel southwest of buzzard bay. Chartreuse grubs, castmasters, and small jigs work well.|
|Wiper||Fair.||All sizes||Fair. Several reports of 3-8 lb. fish being caught near the river channel and Loder's point area. Try 1/8 oz. jigs with swimbaits.|
