Predominant Fish Species: Largemouth bass   Crappie   Catfish White & hybrid striped bass.

Largemouth Bass are more active during the fall, winter and spring months due to the cooler weather. Fish are active much longer during daylight hours and are normally found in shallow water early morning and late afternoon For active fish, spinner baits and crank baits are most fisherman's choice. A variety of watermelon green plastic worms seems to work well during the hotter months fished in grass. Early morning top water baits are just about anything that floats. Normally Poppers, Prop Baits, Flukes, or just about any Stick Bait.

Crappie fishing (50 per person per day limit) is great just about year around on minnows or jigs. During the spawn, target shallow water grass areas. At other times , Crappie are normally found in deeper water in creek beds and brush piles.
