Winter Fishing Tips (Weekly reports will resume mid-February)

Largemouth bass can be caught around structure, the dam, and in coves near the back of the lake. Fishermen report fishing deep, 20+ feet, with live minnows or plastic worms; June bug and green pumpkin 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 or near the pier by the office. Minnows or jigs tipped with minnows are good choices.

Bream can be caught using crickets or worms around brushtops in 5 to 10 ft of water or along the dam.

Catfish are usually good around creek channels and points. Try cutbait and worms fished on the bottom.


Closed bridges are marked with a red X.
