Crappie - Good; Fish jigs or minnows. Fish have finished spawning and have headed to deeper water. Been catching fish best in 6-10 foot of water on stake beds or brush piles.

Catfish - Great; cut shad and worms; Fishing the rocks is hot right now, you can also fish mouths of creeks, shallow necks and drifting flats and do good.

Bass - Good to excellent; Worms, rattle traps, crank baits, Jig and trailer. Fish around bushes, lay downs, rip rap, weed beds, and drop off’s.

White bass - Fair; Jig and curly tail grubs, vibrax Spinner number three. Look for them on main lake humps and drop offs.

Bluegill -  Good; Look in the back of necks and on flat shallow banks and on the rocks. Fish shallow with crickets, worms or small jigs.
