Bass fishing is fair. Some fishermen have been having some success with watermelon colored worms. Also try junebug, tequila sunrise or red shad colored lures. Spinnerbaits have also been working well. Target main lake points, brush piles, and structure along the levee in deep water. The creek channels are holding some bass later in the day. Harvest of small bass is encouraged at this lake.
Bream fishing was fair this past week. Some fish were caught on redworms over the weekend.
Catfishing is fair. Some big catfish are still being caught once in a while. Catfish are usually good on the shallower flats and points. Try worms or liver fished on the bottom. One 7 pound catfish was caught over the weekend on a spinnerbait.
Crappie fishing is good. One regular fisherman to the lake caught his limit a couple of weeks ago, then 22 a couple of days later. One angler caught 100 in 3 1/2 days. Fishermen are catching them around brush piles using minnows or various colored jigs in 8-10 feet of water. Target deep water brush piles along the dam and main lake points too.
