Honestly I haven’t been fishing for a while due to the hazardous contamination in the lake since the train bridge blew up. But it’s closes to my area and I’ve been fishing there for two months now. You be surprise what you can catch in a big ol lake. Almost caught me a carp and a catfish but sadly disappeared. Beautiful bluegills and yellow bass. There’s also beautiful bait fishes as well. If anything, I will be glad to go back again and continue on fishing!

Great place to fish....

This is my home water area. It’s all about timing if you plan to fish these waters. Summer time is tough due to high water levels and tubers going down the river but fall, winter and spring are awesome. It’s stocked with trout in the winters and bass can be caught year round. Stick with the deeper pools. Best of luck!!!
