Montgomery State Fishing Lake Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Baits, Method, & Location
Channel Catfish Fair 14-24" Catfishing has remained slow.  Chicken livers have been producing some catfish.
Largemouth Bass Fair 8-18" Largemouth bass fishing has been slow.  Look for bass to be in the shallows in the heat of the day.  Use smaller baits and work them slow to have the best success.
Crappie Fair 8-12" Crappie fishing has been hit or miss.  Use small jigs off the end of the docks or around brush.  Fish have been day to day, so checking spots daily may allow you to find the best fishing.
Bluegill/Redear Sunfish Fair 6-8" Bluegill and redear fishing remains slow.  Use small bait under a bobber near vegetation for the best success.
