Best Fishing Bets
Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish and Redear Sunfish
Largemouth Bass - Sampling efforts indicate numerous quality-sized largemouth. Many 2-3 pound bass should be cuaght with several weighing in at more than 5 pounds.

Technique - Spinner baits and plastic worms on points and next to standing timber. During calm spring and fall days, utilize suface plugs. In winter, jerking spoons along the riverbed should land large size bass.

Target - Navigate through the stumps to the back of the lake for some great fall action.
Catfish is one of the most sought after fish in the lake. Catfish in the 1-3 pound range bite year-round.
Technique - Chicken livers and worms work best.
Target - Look to creek channels and deep coves in the summer and fall.
Crappie - Fishing is good year-round. Catches will average 1/2 pound with bigger catches weighing in around 2 pounds.

Technique - Cast to the banks with jigs and minnows in the spring. At other times of the year, slowly troll or drift along the old riverbed and cast to standing timber.

Target - Two marked fish attractors hold fish summer through fall.
Bream - Expect large redear sunfish, up to 1/2 pound. April through early May is the best time
Technique - Crickets, worms, grubs and spinners are recommended.
Target - Hit the area just below the dam on the Little Ogeechee River for redbreast.
Chain Pickerel (a.k.a jackfish) are available and though not typically targeted, they are sure to grab attention when they strike.

Technique - Variety of weedless lures and surface plugs work best. A wobbling spoon with trailing pork rid, plastic lizards and hollow-faced chugger type surface plugs are good bets. According to locals, jackfish aggressively attack anything red.

Target - Look to areas of vegetation.
