Catfishing here is very abundant and extremely active. I recommend the following for best results bait wise. Chicken or Rabbit liver, Nightcrawlers, Minnows or Shad and Hot Dogs. The catfish feed regularly, but I've had better success closer in the evenings around 7:30 to 8:30 before the lake closes. Any location, shoreline or at the piers will yield results, but be advised the biggest I've pulled was a ten pound channel cat on a carolina rig fishing with liver. This lake sadly is a catch and release lake due to high levels of PCBs in the lake and creeks surrounding the area.

The reports here are Laughable(site report, not other fishermens real time experiences) bass down south don't stop biting bc of the heat! Bass have to support their higher metabolic rate spurred on by the higher water temps. Sure, the bite CHANGES, when it gets hot but the durn things gotta eat and warmer water down here means an aggressive need to feed. Top waters are good early and evening, also hit em on black/blue combo jigs. Spend time finding the schools of bait fish. Best success is always fishing parallel to bank, bass will feed up so no need to be on the bottom. Suspending cranks do well especially along rocky edges that lead around main creek channel flows. Look for quality on this lake, not quantity. Green pumpkin finesse worms can trigger bites in the heat of the day. I test lures for 30 mins once I find em, then tweak one variable at a time (color, size, type). Stay focused and you can zone in on what they want for a particular day.

I heard there has been a huge fish kill of tilapia in the lake due to the power plant hot water output being changed. Anyone seen this or heard the same report?

I will get back on here later tonight and edit this, but my dad went twraods the end of winter. the guy that took him charged like 100 if you have 4 or more people. i think there was five total on their boat and they fished for about 4 or 5 hrs and caught over 100 fish. i will call him tonight and get the guys name and number. if you don\'t want to pay to fish you can go below the denison dam and limit out pretty quick. the limit on the lake is 5 fish with 2 over 20 inches. but below the dam, the limit is 5 with no size limit. i have went down there many times throwing just topwater and limited out in 30 mins to 1 hr. with fish usually ranging from 1 lb up to 5lbs. i have caught bigger with a 16 lb being the biggest last year. i have also seen many 30-50lb blue cats being pulled out to.

I\'ve been fishing Jordan since June 2015 the fall time has proven the best time for me. Chicken liver #6 circle hook and elastic thread- hand to beat them off to keep the little ones away. Oct 2015 the smaller ones weren\'t biting the water was high up about 20 feet, the big cats where biting on chicken liver we caught 6 in 2 hours ranging from 1-7 pounds, all channel cats. February nothings biting tried chicken liver worms large minnows cut bait from the bank haven\'t even seen a minnow so the cats are probably still in deep holes.
