I've never fished for them there, but I know they're in there. I had one pluck a crappie off of my stringer a couple of years ago, setting on the old dam. We was out there last Saturday, and the water is high, we didn't catch anything.
We went up there last Saturday night and I caught one channel around 5lbs on a small crappie. I think we are going to try around the new dam on the north side and see how it goes. I just haven't fished the lake very much so I don't know anything about the lake.
Right now they are tough on the lake. I fish Wellington quite a bit because it's just South out of my backdoor. It's a good flathead lake with good numbers and good size. I have taken 10 flats out off of there in the last 3 weeks but let me tell ya, it's a stretch right now. Most were taken right before the spawn and it has been very slow since. I keep waiting for them to pick back. It's not my honey hole or anything but it's a good one and is worth a try or two if you've never fished it. Right now fish structure ,riprap and stumps. Saturday night I slip bobbered around the tower and old damn and caught 1 and it was a very slow night. It'll pick up just stay at it.
Friday night we fished and camped on the west side midway in the old lake side next to a cove that was full of tree stumps. The channels kept eating our perch so evidently they weren't big enough hehe. Left saturday because of the rain. I will have to give it another shot in the next week or so.
