Night Fishing: Beginning July 10 and continuing Friday and Saturday nights. The lake will be open until 11:30 p.m., and boats must return to dock between 9 and 11 p.m. depending on group. Due to COVID-19 sanitation protocols, boat rentals will be limited. Everyone must bring a face covering and wear it when required. Show picture ID at dock after renting a boat at concessions. All occupants of a boat must be from the same household. Catfish will be stocked July 10, July 17, July 31, August 14, and August 28. (Stocking schedule subject to change.)
The last Catfish stock of the year was on Friday August 28th with 1,300 lbs. During night fishing the shore will be open until 11:30 PM and boats can stay out until 9:00 to 11:00 PM depending on group. During night fishing half day boats start at 4:00 PM. Andrew Aase-Belda fishing from a boat by Boulder Bay on Friday August 28th pulled out a nice catfish (see photo) using Charlies Blood B Catfish Dough bait.
The best bait is still Mackerel, but people also have been successful with chicken livers and stink bait. For boaters the best spot is tying up to the Log Boom and people fishing from the shore have been having the most success at Jump Off Point and Boulder Bay.
When you stop by concessions to buy your permit ask about the best spots and baits. They have up to the minute information. Remember concessions closes at 6:30 PM, 9:00 PM on Friday and Saturday nights, so come early enough to buy your permit or rent a boat.
