The lake is at full pool and stable.

Bass action is slow, with most of the fish being caught on Carolina rigged Zoom lizards and worms in pumpkin pepper colors. Fish these baits on points in 5-18 feet of water. Some anglers are having success with small blue fleck plastic worms, fished down the dropoffs on the main river.

Jigging points in 18 feet of water with white bucktails and spoons is producing a mixed bag for anglers utilizing the technique.

Striper action is good, with fish being taken in the back of Nutbush Creek and from Buoy 16 to 18. Jigging with Hopkins Spoons or Sting Silvers is the better method, with some being caught on Cordell Redfins at night.

Crappie fishing is excellent on live minnows, fished over brushpiles in 8-15 feet of water and around bridge pilings.

White bass are schooled and biting well.

Below the dam, stripers to 15 pounds, are taking pencil poppers.

White perch and plenty of catfish are also available below the dam.
