With the nights beginning to cool, the fishing on the lake should begin to pick up. Anglers should try their luck around any downed trees or weed beds using worms, small minnows or jigs for sunfish. Bass anglers should concentrate their efforts along areas with good structure such as downed timber, rocky drops, or weed beds. Top-water baits such as rapalas, tiny torpedoes, and sluggoes are excellent choices but anglers will find the best topwater action early or late. Bluegills can provide anglers with some fast action. Best baits are worms and small jigs. Anglers can have a blast fishing for sunfish. Channel catfish are also hitting in the lake primarily at night on chicken livers and worms. Carp and channel catfish are hitting in the tailwaters with best baits being corn, and nightcrawlers, respectively. Occasionally, anglers have been catching some other species such as smallmouth bass in the tailwaters on jigs and minnows.

Fishing on the lake is good as some fish are still on the spawning beds. Anglers should try their luck around any downed trees or weed beds using worms, small minnows or jigs for sunfish. Bass anglers should concentrate their efforts along areas with good structure such as downed timber, rocky drops, or weed beds. Top water baits such as rapalas, tiny torpedoes, and sluggoes are excellent choices. Because some bass and sunfish are still in spawning mode, anglers may expect somewhat higher success rates and also chances to catch larger fish. Bluegills can provide anglers with some fast action. Best baits are worms and small jigs. Anglers can have a blast fishing for the sunfish. Channel catfish are also hitting in the lake primarily at night on chicken livers and worms. Carp and channel catfish are hitting in the tailwaters with best baits being corn and nightcrawlers. Occasionally, anglers have been catching some other species such as smallmouth bass and hybrid stripers in the tailwaters on jigs and minnows.
