Predominant Fish Species
Commercial maps may be available.
All species are currently managed under statewide regulations.
Largemouth bass fishing is fair. Smallmouth bass are present in the reservoir but not in sufficient numbers to produce a fishery. Catfish, crappie, and white bass fishing is good. Fishing for redear and redbreast sunfish is fair
The upper end of the reservoir is mainly mud flats and river channels with fallen timber. The main part of the reservoir has mud flats with flooded terrestrial vegetation, rock bluffs, and a few rip-rapped dikes and the dam.
Catfish are caught all over the reservoir with live and prepared baits. White bass are caught by trolling artificial lures in the main part of the reservoir. Crappie are caught with minnows and small jigs along steep drop-off and rock ledges. Largemouth bass are caught with live and artificial baits along the rocks and fallen timber and in the flooded terrestrial vegetation.
