Largemouth bass can be caught in the coves near the back of the lake in the shade around structure. Try soft plastics, spinnerbaits and night crawlers. Fishing frogs along the lily pads is proving successful in shallow waters.
Fish for bream in shallow water on crickets and worms fished near beds. Fishermen are having the most luck between the dam and the spillway using live worms or on crickets fished slowly from the piers.
Catfish are starting to bite in old creekbeds that run through the lake. Fishermen are catching them best on livers and stinkbait fished on bottom.
