General Comments

The water is normal and clear.  The boatramp  is fine. 

In the spring of 2018, another 95 Georgia cubes have been placed to attract fish to shoreline areas.  Shoreline fishing can be good in deeper water around the lake.  This lake produces some nice crappie each year.  Recent sampling indicates that there are many good crappie to catch.  The bass population at this impoundment consists of spotted and largemouth bass.  Spotted bass tend to hang near rocks and the dam, whereas on the south end of the lake your more likely to catch only largemouth bass.  The fish feeders are ON.
