Fishing Tips

"A positive attitude and an open mind are true characteristics of all good fishermen"

Fishing the White Bass Run

The warm days of spring and red bud trees signal the start of the spring white bass run into the headwaters of the lake. Shoreline fishing is excellent from Bacon Creek to Wheelers Mill.  The numbers and quality of the fish is exceptional.  Fish the riffles and current breaks at varying depths until you find a school. It is possible to get your limit without moving more than a few feet from where you started.  These lures in a 1/8 ounce size are consistent producers using a slow steady retrieve. You may even get a walleye to add to the days catch.  Keep what you will eat and return the rest to finish the spawning run for future populations.
