Great boat ramps, marinas, docks and fishing piers all enhance your boating and fishing experience. There are 200 miles of shoreline, plus humps, islands, ledges, creek channels and boat docks for the fish to roam. Aquatic vegetation and brush tend to hold bass during spring and fall when they are shallow. Winter and summer moves the fish deeper as they follow the baitfish to more comfortable water temperatures. Fishing from a canoe, kayak or small fishing boat can improve access to the shallow water reeds and vegetation in the upper regions of the lake. Hybrids and white bass follow schools of baitfish and move deep and shallow similar to bass. Catfish are available year round and are best caught on cut bait or stink baits.
