Wilson State Fishing Lake Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Baits, Method & Location  
Channel Catfish Good 16-24" Catfishing remains good.  Cooler water temps have brought fish into shallower water.  Look for fish to be feeding in the evenings.  
Largemouth and Spotted Bass Good 10-22" Bass fishing has improved.  Fish have moved into shallower water with the cooling water.  
Crappie Good 8-12" Crappie fishing has improved.  Look for fish to be near structure or around the fishing docks.  Minnows have been working the best.    
Bluegill and Redear Good 6-8" Bluegills and redears fishing remains good.  Look for them just outside of the weed line.  Small jigs tipped with a worm have been working the best.
