alands94 I have fished Washington County Lake many times . Its a great place for the whole family . If going catfishing its best in a boat . From the boat launch go North , the lake splits to a y stick to the left till you get to the lillie pads . Thats the magic spot . You can catch cats all night long on damn near anything there . Average size about 5 pounds but have caught lots of 12 to 20 pounders in that very spot . The bait I found to work wonders is Sonnys Dip bait (blood formula) used with the dip lures from wally world that have the holes in them . If you make it out there happy fishing and let me know how it turns out .
