TIPS & TACTICS

Largemouth Bass fishing in this power plant reservoir is best during the winter when water temperatures range from the mid-50s to the mid-70s. From March through May, fish are in shallow water 2 to 15 feet deep. At this time of year, bass are caught along shorelines and in coves on spinner baits, topwater baits, plastic worms, and crank baits. From June through August, largemouths are usually found at depths of 10 to 20 feet, but some may remain at shallow depths during the day. roductive baits include plastic worms and deep-diving crank baits. In September and October, bass may be caught near the surface or in water less than 10 feet deep. From December through February, anglers should concentrate on depths of 15 to 30 feet, or in areas of warmer water, using plastic worms, jigs, and deep-diving crank baits.
Channel Catfish can be caught throughout the year. Drift fishing with shad across flats and points is usually good. Fishing from the park shoreline is also very productive. This lake boasts an exceptional channel catfish fishery, both in numbers and average size.
Tilapia are present in great numbers in the reservoir. They seek out warmer water during colder months and can be caught with rod and reel in certain situations. Many people use a cast net, which is a legal harvest method for this invasive yet tasty species. Anglers using cast nets MUST return all game fish immediately to the water unharmed.
