It is a stump field lake and other then spring time the fishing isn't that great. It is a fairly deep lake by the dam and clear. Two launches one by the dam (don't suggest using it due to sketchy people hanging out) then one right by the bridge.

rodge thank you for the info. Can you run it at all or is it best to just idle around?

Not sure about running the lake, but I've been told it was one of the first lakes the Florida strain was released. Big fish have came out of there but I've never fished it.
Hard to drive an hour when there are 5 others less than 30 mins.

DONT RUN!!! Even the guys I know that fish it regularly won't run it. It's a big fish lake, so that means it can be stingy. It's also the lake the local bass guys go to, to fill the freezer with crappie.

I fish it sometimes I never plane my boat out in it I hit stumps in the boat roads and channel but fishing wise it's been good to me right now I'd throw big worms in the stump on the edge of the channel and crank baits on the humps there's also Lilly pads the fish will get in at times

Im going to head out there this sunday and try it out. I was looking at google maps for the launch at the bridge and couldn't see one really. Is it a public ramp or a pay one and is it just off the road that the bridge is on?

I'm hitting it up tomorrow. I really want to go to Claiborne, but I'm giving this place a try instead.

Well good luck to both of you guys. I've been wanting to hit Claiborne and try my luck with some stripers but got to work on the house for resale.

I sure wish I would have went to Claiborne, or Cross, or Caddo, or Hosston, etc. Nice looking lake, but I will never go back.
