Largemouth Bass: Several bass are being caught by anglers fishing summer patterns. These areas are in the deeper water of secondary locations and in the river. Humps, points and ledges are popular features. Crankbaits, plastic worms and spoons are a few baits being used.

Smallmouth Bass: Slow rolling spinnerbaits at night along river banks is a technique an angler used recently for a couple of nice bass.

Walleye: A few are being caught while trolling crankbaits in the tailwaters.

Crappie: Docks and deep structure in large secondary areas are being targeted while using minnows or jigs. Light used at night around deeper banks will draw in a few crappie.

Striped bass: Most stripers seem to be in the mid lake. Ledge fishermen are catching a few there while using jigging spoons.
