Winter Fishing Tips
Largemouth bass can be
caught during the winter on soft plastics.
Try junebug, tequila sunrise or red shad colored lures. Target main lake points, brush piles, and structure
along the levee in deep water. Harvest
of small bass is encouraged at this lake.
Bream can be caught with
crickets and worms around brushtops in 5-10 feet of water. Tight lining with redworms is a good way to
catch Redear Sunfish.
Catfish are usually good
on the shallower flats and points. Try worms or liver fished on the bottom.
Crappie fishing can be
slow during the winter. Try 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.
