When fish are found anglers can load the boat but finding them is the trick. Best action is coming from midlake and downlake areas and seems to be centered around the points halfway back in the creeks and in the edges of the flooded cover in the coves. Spinnerbaits plastic worms and jig ‘n pig […]

Bass are schooled up on structure and can be consistently caught on old road beds and points in 4-10 feet of water. Fish are aggressively hitting lures bumped on structure. Best lures are plastic worms and grubs in light colors fished on Carolina rigs. Striped bass are being caught by trolling with bucktails Cordell Red […]

Bass fishing should be improving with the falling temperatures and stabilizing weather. Best pattern appears to be a Carolina rigged pumpkinseed Zoom lizard fished in 20-25 feet of water on main lake points. Working these baits across the middle of coves in the creeks is also producing well. Striper action is slow but some fish […]

Bass action has slowed in the past week. Some good fish are being taken by fishing red mud points with stumps. Long tapering points on islands are also producing fish on deep diving crankbaits and plastic grubs. Spinnerbaits slow-rolled in shallow water early in the mornings will take some fish. Crappie action is fair over […]

Striper fishing is slow but picking up. The fish have moved near the dam and can be found from Buoy 2 to 4 with trolling still producing the better catches. Bass fishing is slow with most fish being caught in 10-30 feet of water on deep diving crankbaits and Carolina-rigged plastics. Try a bucktail jig […]

Stripers are taking trolled Cordell Redfins from buoy 4-7 in the main lake and from the mouth of Nutbush to buoys G & H in the creek. The stripers are skittish due to heavy boat traffic. Best catches are coming at dawn and dusk. Bass are located in 20+ feet of water with anglers catching […]

Stripers are being caught vertical jigging with Hopkins spoons. Better areas are Nutbush Creek and County Line Creek on the lower end of the lake. Rattling crankbaits and plastic lures in pumpkinseed or june bug colors are taking largemouth bass. The fish are located in 17-30 feet on main lake points. Crappie are located on […]

Stripers in the 15 pound class are being caught vertical jigging with Hopkins and Salty Dog spoons and jigs. Trolling with bucktails and Redfins is also working well.
