Bass fishing is fair. Down and up lake fish are more active. A Zoom pumpkinseed lizard either on a Texas or Carolina rig. Live lizards and bass minnows are fair on points in Yellow Jacket Creek. Up river dark jig and craw worms on the heavy bank cover or a buzz bait can get a strike. Stay close to the river current on points at 8 to 17 feet. Just think deep the rest of the summer for bass in the middle of the day. Use a Rapala DT14 or DT16 along the edge at this point will catch the bass. Make a long cast and get the bait to slowly hit and bounce off the bottom rocks. Use a slow, but steady retrieve while fishing during the hot summer months. There is a good top water bite in the middle of the main lake creeks early and late. The rocks around the Yellow Jacket Creek bridge are good summer crank bait areas. With the long 3 foot leader on the Carolina rig and a full one ounce weight anglers can fish all day on the road beds and pond dams down lake. The fish are not any deeper than 15 feet all over the lake. Shad colored crank baits in bone and blue and green colors are fair on light line on points. Shad Raps in the shad and bay bass colors on 10 pound test line are also good. Rat L Traps in the chrome blue backs and smoke shiner colors has been good. Make a lot of casts in the middle of the lower lake creeks all day. Cast them right on the bank and hit the old pond dams also.
