Latest fishing report
Anglers are catching 25-inch (and larger) channel catfish, white bass, carp and crappie. For catfish, fishing at night has been the most productive and try using chicken livers encased in nude nylon, shrimp, nightcrawlers, white bass cut bait, or Catfish Charlie Blood Dip Bait.
