ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES

Largemouth bass are always a favorite of many anglers. Smallmouth bass can be found around rocky outcrops. The hybrid striped bass population is currently very good in the reservoir, with many keeper-sized fish ready to strike. Quality white bass are present in small numbers and can be caught using small spoons or shad imitating jigs off open water points. There are also good numbers of sizable channel and blue catfish in the 2-5 pound range with a few much bigger.

TIPS & TACTICS

For largemouth bass, try fishing deep drop-offs near points in the warmer months using jigs or shad imitating lures. Smallmouth bass can be found around rocky outcrops using crawfish-colored crankbaits and jigs. Hybrid striped bass have been concentrating around open water points and humps and in deep water near the dam. Troll spoons or rattle traps in deep water with down-riggers or use chicken liver for bait. White bass can be caught using small spoons or shad imitating jigs off open water points. Look for schools breaking the surface and throw topwater lures past the school and drag your lure through with a fast retrieve. For catfish, use chicken liver, blood bait, or shad in deep coves that have feeder creeks (even if the creeks are not currently flowing).
