Scott State Lake Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Baits, Method & Location
Channel Catfish Fair/Good Most in the 13 to 18 inch range Prepared baits, minnows, and worms fished off the bottom in deeper water during the day or in the shallows at night has been best.
Crappie Slow Up to 13 inches Fishing minnows under a bobber around deeper brush or up in the creek early or late.
Largemouth Bass Fair Up to 5.5 lbs. Casting soft plastics and swim baits around shoreline habitat and brush piles.
Sunfish Fair/Good Up to 8 inches Worms under a bobber and small jigs fished around brush, laydown trees, rocks, and vegetation along the shoreline especially when the above mentioned habitat is in, or directly adjacent to, deeper water.
Saugeye Slow/Fair Up to 7 lbs. Casting fish imitating swimbaits and crankbaits or still fishing minnows either under a bobber or off the bottom over points and shallow, rocky flats, along rip-rapped shorelines, and along edges of cattail stands is productive.  Trolling fish imitating crankbaits in deeper water lake-wide has produced a few fish.  Morning, evening, and night are the best times.  Anglers report catching a few fish ranging in length from 14 to 22 inches.
