TIPS & TACTICS

Fish the edge of the water willow and dam with spinner baits in the spring for largemouth bass. Later on in the summer and into fall go to worms and crankbaits for bass. Crappie fishing is best in the winter and early spring. In the winter they are deep in schools near cover. In the spring they move into the shallow shoreline to spawn. Jigs or minnows are baits of choice. Channel and blue catfish are best from late winter through the fall. Drift fish using liver, blood bait, crawfish, or cheese.


FISHING COVER / STRUCTURE

Cover consists of submerged brush piles along the dam, isolated submerged brush piles, water willow and submerged boulders along the shoreline, and some standing timber in the upper end. If you can locate the opening to Rippy Branch in the upper end of the lake, you will find some good deep holes for bass and catfish. The entire stretch of the stream is shaded by overhanging tree limbs. You might even be treated to a deer swimming across the branch.


AQUATIC VEGETATION

Mostly water willow, bulrush, cattail and some floating pondweed. Approximately 70% of the shoreline is ringed with a band of water willow 10 to 25 feet wide.


FISHING REGULATIONS

This lake is located totally within the boundaries of Lake Mineral Wells State Park, and is therefore regulated as a Community Fishing Lake.
