Lake Jennings Fishing Report

Lake Jennings Fishing Report

by Lake Jennings Staff


Anglers vying for trout will have the best luck in deep waters. Try casting a night crawler along the dam buoy line or in Sentry Cove.


Cloister Cove is producing largemouth bass with plastic worms. This week its best to target top water. Try fishing with silver minnow jigs or jerk baits.


The bluegill and redear bite have picked up, especially in the shallow coves of the lake. Use 2-6 lb. test line with a split shot 18” about the hook. Wax worms are the best bait for bluegill.


Instagram’s @dark.wolf.13 caught bass and slabs of bluegill over the weekend. He caught the bass on plastic worms. Rebecca Barnes caught this nice bluegill in Hermit Cove while fishing with her nephew.
