Winter Fishing Tips (Weekly reports will resume mid-February)
Largemouth bass can be caught around structure, the dam, and ledges in 5 to 15 ft of water. Try Texas-rigged plastic worms; June bug, green pumpkin, and Bama Bug colors work well. Also try using suspending jerkbaits and lipless crankbaits along channels.
Crappie can be caught in deeper water, around 10 to 15 ft deep. Minnows or jigs tipped with minnows are good choices, try trolling in the old creek channel that runs near the dam.
Bream can be caught using crickets or worms around brushtops in 5 to 10 ft of water.
Catfish are usually good around creek channels and points. Try cutbait and worms fished on the bottom.
