I fished Lake Orange for the first time, and did pretty good. I caught a total of five channels, the largest went about 3 pounds. I caught them all on chicken livers within 15 yards are so from the bank. I missed a number of bites, which after a while I was getting mad, but after catching the first fish, less than 12", I understood why I had missed so many. One thing that surprised me about the lake was the face there is not a lot of bank space except right by the bait shack and boat ramp. I was under the impression it had much more open bank to fish from. The water was also very warm, the times I had chicken liver left on the hook, they were half cooked! I wonder how warm the lake gets, considering it is only the first week of june. Anyway, it was a good enough trip that I will go back.
