Very overfished if you’re bank fishing, but if you have a boat, kayak, or something to get you to the other side then you may have more luck. Summer and early Fall are the most ideal times to fish. Late spring can be effective as well, just depends on the weather. There’s usually a big crowd in the easy to get to spots, but if you find the right spot on a trail you can catch consistently as well
About 20 largemouth bass, two chain pickles.
There are Structures at 10-12 feet deep all around the lake. Hold or anchor at 15-18 feet and cast toward shore. You're bound to pick up a LMB or three. Rocks and weed beds for Panfish, Chain Pickerel, Rock bass and Smallmouth Bass. The wind can be rough in the mornings.
