    I havent fished Tillery in a while, but when I did, you almost always catch decent fish around the Dam past Marrow mountain. Good mix of deep and shallow water between the damn and rocks. Bait I can't help you with but when we crappie fish there during early spring, I always see schools of shad at the mouth of swift Island, and around 24/27 bridge, plus around the spillways at the damn. Lot of water to cover there, but I have seen very nice blues come from that lake, and its probably just a matter of time before a monster shows up.
