    Water Temp: 64

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Look for Bass on rip rap rocks, main lake points, try worms and tubes (colors vary on your flavor) or topwater baits with early morning and/or calm water. This fishery is coming back from a dam renovation and the forage fish base is plentiful and bass are looking healthy.

    Water Temp: Cool to Cold

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: Fairly difficult to locate the Bass without a fish finder and boat due to the size of this body of water. I did, however, catch a 1-1/2 pound 12 to 13" small mouth off the shore on the east side of the res. using some medium sized shiners. Good luck, let me know if anyone else has success.
