Well its officially the first day of Summer! There has been an abundance of park visitors over the last couple of weeks, and many of them have been successful in their fishing endeavors. The crappie have been mostly biting on minnows and dark colored tube jigs early in the morning. Fishing down around the dam in 18ft of water seems to be the best tactic for mid day crappie. Channel cat have been very active at night on chicken liver and dough bait. The saugeye have been hit or miss, we've seen them mostly caught down deep drifting over brush piles with worms or minnows. Largemouth bass are very active just before sunrise or right after sunset. Fishing rocky outcroppings with crankbaits has proved to bring them in.
- Until next time, Keep fishing friends
