    Ive fished this lake when i was little and dont really remember anything...


    Can anybody tell me what baits to use/where good bankfishing spots for catfishing are?

    And are you allowed to throw a cast net in the lake?

    Chris, the last time I fished there was many years ago and back then the spillway was a good place to fish but you will hang up a lot there. There are some big ole boys in the spillway unless they have changed it up since I was there.

    chris. i heard they had turned the water off completely over the 4th of july week for repairs to the spillway. just down the spillway there is some sorta creek.(maybe) depends on how much water is tricklin through. ya might call someone before you make the trip. good luck!

    Now I had some enjoyable times on this lake. It was back in 1989 when I was there and we fished the spillway often. Caught plenty each time. Would really enjoy going back and seeing it after so many years.

    Good luck!
