  • Stocking: The lake has been stocked with a total of 4,000 pounds of catfish this summer. Another 1,000 pounds will be added the week of Labor Day. 
  • What's the catch? Catfish were biting in Eagle and Half Moon Coves over the weekend on mackerel and chicken liver. Catfish are biting during the day in deeper waters accessible by boat. If fishing from the shoreline, our rangers recommend fishing in areas where there is cover or if possible cast to deeper waters. Bass were reeled in from Sentry Cove this weekend. Anglers reported they were biting on Brush Hog green pumpkin and watermelon candy. Many bluegill were caught in Hermits Cove this weekend. Wax worms and half a nightcrawler were doing the trick!
