We’ve had a few reports of catfish caught reported to the marina. If you’d like to report your catches, please come to the marina, and we’ll take your picture!


Many anglers are using plastic worms or swim baits. There has been an abundance of smaller size bass (one to three pounds) being caught all over the lake along the shorelines. Senkos have been the most popular bait to use.

Please practice catch and release for bass as they are not stocked into the lake and their population depends on you!
