    Poor Overholser. Its a neglected lake. A guy in the paper caught a 68 lb flat there this summer. I fish the river in the wildlife refuge right by Overholser. I dont get out on the lake itself much. Would like to hear from somebody that does.

    I have fished it a handful of times without much sucess. I have started tube fishing it along the cat tails on the north side. That is how and where the "biggun" was caught. Although I am not during the cold months.
    If I recall the story correct it was a Bethany fireman and he was useing a homemade dough bait that he said did not stink and he offered no other details about his bait.
    The best thing about this lake IMO is the easy access. I have seen quite a few walleye caught below the dam and many, many gar. Just for the sport I would like to target the gar on one of my trips there.
