Was there today for the second time this season and caught 3 bass all on the dam and was there most of the afternoon. I walked up east side and hit a few openings and west side and did the same with not even a nibble.

This lake confounds me. Its so big and beautiful but tough to fish with little shore access and usually slow fishing. Today was the best I have ever done. One was 2 1/3 lbs but the others small. Tried swim jig on shore grass and cover with no luck. Tried a crankbait out deeper with no luck and went back to spinnerbait I started with with clouds, wind and muddy water and hit them all about 10 feet off shore at the dam.

Anyone have an opinion on this place or some success they can share? Find it hard to believe the bucket brigade has emptied this huge reservoir out.

You probably caught the bass at the dam because its the deepest water you could reach from shore. When everything starts to cool down like it has, lately, the fish tend to go deeper.
Don't forget to wear sunscreen and don't litter!

yes that makes sense. I didn't think the water temp was getting that cold yet and after the warm rain/front thought they might head shallow.

This lake is deep too. about 60 feet at its deepest pretty close to the dam.

I love this lake, wish I can kayak it. There is Carp and Pike in there as well!

It's tough fishing for sure though! Any time of the year (based on my experience)
