Woodson State Fishing Lake Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Bait, Method, Location
Largemouth Bass Good 6-14" Using light tackle and small lures like beetle spins, small inline spinners or small plastic baits will be productive. Topwater baits early and late in the day will provide some exciting action. Some larger fish are available but not high in density.
Channel Catfish Good 12-21" Livers, shad sides, stink bait fished on wind blown banks, or the north end with water coming in. Lots of fish in the 1-4 lb. range.
Walleye Poor 8-12" You will be hard pressed to find a fish of harvestable length.
Bluegill Good 4-6" mealworms, nightcrawlers, or small jigs fished near shore and around vegetation or brush.
Crappie Poor   The population is low in abundance and not many fish are harvestable length yet.
We added 120 brush piles and 220 Georgia Cubes to the lake for fish habitat. For a map of these habitat locations and a bathymetric map of Woodson State Fishing Lake CLICK HERE
