|Species||Rating||Size||Baits, Method & Location|
|Crappie||Fair||8-14 inches||Using live bait around deep water structure such as drop offs or brushpiles should be productive.|
|Channel catfish||Fair||8-30 inches||Livers, shad sides, or other prepared baits along ledges or windy banks. The upper end of the lake should be good when water is running in. Don't be afraid to fish shallow.|
|Largemouth Bass||Good||up to 5lbs.||Football jigs or shakey heads worked around structure, also slow rolling spinnerbaits and swimbaits may produce. Recent sampling continues to show excellent numbers of good sized bass. The length limit was changed to a 15"-21" protected slot limit. You are encouraged to harvest all bass under 15" to improve the population.|
|Wipers||Slow-Fair||up to 6 lbs||Chicken livers or shad imitating baits such as crankbaits, spinnerbaits, rattletraps, soft jerkbaits, fished around wind blown banks and dropoffs.|
Please remember to help STOP AQUATIC HITCHHIKERS! CLEAN, DRAIN, and DRY your boat and livewell when leaving water bodies.
Four Georgia Cube Fish Attractors were placed by the fishing dock (2on the East end and 2 on the West end) on the north end of the lake.
DO NOT MOVE FISH OR BAIT TO DIFFERENT WATERS!
