The largemouth bass have managed to keep anglers occupied all week. Many verbal reports of 10+ bass per angler, mostly in the 1-2 pound range. Horseshoe Cove was the best for that kind of fishing. George Burruss, visiting from North Dakota caught a 10 lb 1 oz bass on a drop shot rig in Horseshoe Cove. Other good areas include the opening to Pumphouse Cove and directly across from the launch ramp.
Little trout action was reported this week, as most anglers were after bass and catfish. Jessica Dillard fooled a 5 pound trout; her personal best. She also landed a 3 pound catfish.
The catfish continue to please anglers with many limits reported. Nightcrawlers are the best bet. Emily Stewart of San Diego had a good day with 2 cats, 3 bass and 4 bluegill. Crappie have moved away from shore and can be found in deeper waters around the dam using small jigs. Carp are being caught on a more regular basis while anglers are looking for meatier fair.
