I\'ve been out to this lake 3 times now and managed to hook 1 large mouth that was barely worth mentioning. Bream bite is non existant and you can\'t get a catfish bite either. this was all shore fishing however the bite shouldn\'t be that slow in the early evening especially with Bream in mid spawn. I might try this lake if I had a boat but there are no public boat launches

Perfect day for bluegill fishing however the bite was slow and at times non-existant. Hooked a juvenile yellow bass on a redworm slow retrieve. Bluegill should have been highly aggressive while on spawning beds but the bite was very poor. Redear were slow to bite as well.

Last trip to the lake was Martin Luther King Day. Water temp 38 - 40 in the river channel into the mouth of Peters Creek. Several Fisherman were running spider rigs in the main channel with little to no luck. I noticed most of them did not use fish finders at all just continued to troll. My wife and I trolled the channel for a few hours with no luck then moved into the creek channel where I began to notice bait fish on my finders holding at 12 feet. We caught 30 crappie ranging from 9 to 12 inches in 2 hours all on jigs.

Wasnt out but three hours and had 8 crappie and two bass. This was last weekend when it was warm and rainy. Fog was so bad on the water. It was great to just get out on the winter and catch a few. Once I found them I caught them quick. Holding between 15 and 20 feet. I will know where to start the next warm day we have.
