The warmer temperatures after the freeze have not stopped the fish from biting, but freezing temperatures will return soon so beware.

Some anglers are still taking fish daily from a limited number of haunts throughout the lake. Small plastic grubs, liberally doused with fish attractants are taking the fish in the deeper water while crankbaits and spinnerbaits are doing the trick in the shallow water. The slower the bait is fished, the more successful it will be. Letting the bait sit on the bottom motionless will often produce better than moving it.


Largemouth bass are catchable by working spoons and spinnerbaits in 20-25 feet of water on dropoffs, in the lower end. The sun in the afternoon is bringing them up on rocky points to feed. Jig ‘n pig and fat plastic grubs are the ticket.

Crappie are slow to hit, but can be located around brushpiles in 20 feet of water. Best method for catching the crappie is using a small jig and six pound line. Still fish the jig over the brushpiles.

Stripers are holding in 30-35 feet of water with one of the better areas being Nutbush Creek.
