Montgomery State Fishing Lake Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Baits, Method, & Location
Channel Catfish Good 14-24" Catfishing remains good.  Catfish have been moving into the shallow at dark to feed.  Shad sides and chicken livers have been working the best.
Largemouth Bass Good 8-18" Largemouth bass fishing has improved.  Recent sampling has shown fish have moved into the shallows with the cooling water temps.
Crappie Good 8-12" Crappie fishing has improved.  Look for crappie under the docks around the lake.  Minnows have been working the best.
Bluegill/Redear Sunfish Good 6-8" Bluegill and redear fishing remains good.  Look for them just outside of the weed line.  Worms under a bobber and small hair jigs have been working the best.
