Catfish fishing is usually decent this time of year on Ferguson. Trotlines and jugs baited with cut bait, red weenies, or nightcrawlers are all good bets.
Bass fishing has been below normal for most of the year at Ferguson, but there's still lots of good fish in the lake. Try fishing around the piers on the north end or along the rip rap on the eastern banks. Using swim baits or spinerbaits around inflowing creeks is also a great way to catch bass at Ferguson.
