The hybrid and white bass fishing is good all over the lake on top and on structure at various times throughout the day. Use topwater baits, spoons, in-line spinners, swimbaits, Rinky Dinks and just about any bait of your choice in and over 25-80 feet of water.

The black bass fishing is good, with fall and winter fishing good and steady. Fish are all over the water column from 0-40 feet of water. Try topwater baits, spinnerbaits, cranksbaits, C-rigs, Texas rigs, football heads. Those are working as well as a lot of other baits.
