Its been awhile. but we used to fish it for panfish back around 2000-2002. My college roomates grandparents used to set up the R/V there for a few weeks in the Spring and the Fall. Back then lots of really nice gills, crappies, and redears. We caught a few decent bass, but it did not seem to have much in the way of numbers. Our best luck was fishing simple, using slip bobbers w/ minnows or redworms around the fallen timber.
