Water Condition

Conditions : BLUESTONE – With the nights beginning to cool, the fishing on the lake should begin to pick up. Early mornings, fish will be shallow then move into cooler depths as the sun rises and return to the shallows as the sun sets. For shallow water around laydowns, riprap, grass flats, or other structures, use buzzbaits, poppers, spinnerbaits, square billed crankbaits and swimbaits. For deeper water around points, humps, and ledges, use deep crankbaits, Carolina rigs, jigs and pigs, or spoons. Fall turnover is right around the corner so game fish will start to increase their consumption as fall nears. Anglers will have to keep track of where baitfish are, and the game fish will be close by. Bluegill can provide anglers with some fast action. Best baits are worms and small jigs. Channel Catfish are also hitting in the lake primarily at night on chicken livers, cut bait, and worms. Flathead Catfish use live bait. 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 in the tailwaters on jigs and minnows.
