Fishing Cover/Structure

Rocky shoreline, some standing timber in upper end, shallow humps, and random brush piles throughout the middle to lower section.

Tips & Tactics

This isolated reservoir has generally good fishing for all species with traditional baits. Catfish are usually caught in upper portion of reservoir. Crappie are abundant and are of good size. They can be caught in the row of timber by the water pump station southwest of the boat ramp, across from boat ramp around submerged brush piles, and when the reservoir is full at a CR 190 bridge crossing at spawning time. Good largemouth bass can be found around submerged trees and terrestrial vegetation. When water levels are up, pondweed will hold bass. White bass and hybrid striped bass are often located in the lower half of the reservoir. Many anglers target these fish in the cove across from the boat ramp. Many prefer trolling for these species.
