Fishing has been awesome out on the lake for bass, crappie, trout and and even catfish. Anglers have reported trolling for trout out by the buoy line was excellent. Bass and crappie anglers were fishing all over the lake and up river looking for those underwater islands with vegetation. A 15.11 lb. catfish was brought in using chicken liver but the location wasn’t shared.
