Temperature: 65°     Visibility: 24" 


Some fish were caught over the weekend on soft plastic lures. Try dark colored worms along the dam in 5'-8' of water.  Mike Conner is bass crowded, and the harvest of small bass is encouraged.

Above:  Ray Miller with the current lake record bass, 9.28 lbs!



Bream fishing has been fair. Try fishing with 1/16 jig head with was worm fished at about 4'.  Some healthy bream are being caught; not a lot number-wise, but the fish being caught are good ones. Here's Aiden Key with a new recent lake record for redear. The fish weighed 0.4 lbs. Congratulation to Aiden on his nice catch. 


No recent reports on crappie.  Try fishing deeper water and around the fish attractors with small minnows or jigs.


Catfish have started to bite towards evening hours.  Try worms or chicken livers fished on the bottom. Look for post-spawn catfish in deep holes. 



New fish attractors were added at this lake to improve fish habitat.  The brushpiles were added in various depths, but most are located in 3 - 6 ft. of water.  Five brushpiles were sunk on the levee in 15 - 20 ft.  Below are GPS coordinates for some of the sites.  Be sure your GPS is reading decimal degrees (shown below) and not degrees-minutes-seconds when locating these  attractors.
