Vegetation is sparse on the lake with flooded timber being the most abundant cover. Try main lake humps as they tend to attract larger schools of striped bass. For more active Black Bass, try spinner baits and crank baits which are the most popular choice. A variety of plastic worms work best during the hot months of July and August. Early morning top water baits are normally Poppers, Prop Baits or Flukes. Channel catfish are good all year using cut shad or smelly bait, however Crappie fishing on this lake is only fair.
