This review includes the entire stretch of the lower lake, the reservoir and the creek. All are fantastic places to catch fish. In the winter time, focus on the deeper pools and spillways. Sometimes fish will come to very sunny areas to warm up. The creek is also fantastic. All of my catches from these bodies of water have happened with very short casts. There are huge carp present but be very quiet if you wish to catch one. The summer time, I hear many complaints about the weeds and pads. As an angler I see this as a MAJOR opportunity to find the bass. Work weedless frogs over the pads and weeds, and drop weedless senkos around the thick cover. If you see clear pathways, use small crankbaits or jerk baits. During the winter, in-line spinnerbaits, small swim shads and suspending jerkbaits work very well, if you work them slow and steady. But when in doubt, worms work. Nonetheless, this place is beautiful and hard to imagine it’s just a skipping stone away from sunrise highway and the railroad tracks. Enjoy the views and fish!

It’s a very small lake but it is very full with fish. I would say that is that in some places it gets very sour close to the shore, and there are a lot of trees in and out of the water that you might get hooked on, but other than that is, is a very very field lake with nice scenery and pretty big freshwater fish
