Winter Fishing Tips

Large mouth bass can be caught in the winter.  Try using shiners in 10 feet of water for big fish. If using artificial lures, try using dark or natural colored soft plastics in 10 feet of water.  Target the areas with significant depth changes. Also, try crankbaits and rattletraps off the levee in the afternoons.

Bream fishing can be slow, but try using crickets and redworms around brushtops in 5-10 feet of water.

Catfish can be caught on liver or cool-cat worms fished on the bottom in about 5-10 feet of water. Also, try the creek channel in the lake as well as the creek at the nature trail.

Crappie can be found in 15 feet of water suspended at around 9 feet.  Fish structure in these areas with a minnow or jig (white or chartruese).  Also, try the structure around the dam.
