Anglers are doing well on largemouth bass here, fishing low-light periods at daylight and dusk. The popular baits have been crankbaits and rattling baits fished along the rocky shoreline. In the early mornings, you can also throw a topwater frog to try to entice the bite.
Anglers are having success catching channel catfish on nightcrawlers, chicken livers, and raw shrimp. Some of the specimens have been decent size. There isn’t any one particular spot to try for catfish here as they are well distributed throughout the lake. Low light periods of the day are best, but you’ll also likely pick up some catfish while trolling for saugeyes.

The fishing seems to get tougher on this large Logan County lake as the summer temperatures warm up. Still, you might catch some panfish – bluegills and crappies – by dunking a minnow or piece of nightcrawler in front of them. Saugeye fishing is really tough in the summer, but the anglers who are successful troll Flicker Shads in a variety of patterns.
