Great. This year (2022) was a little on the hot (above average) side and there is always the chance of thunderstorms when that hot!

The heat and water temperature have an affect on fishing. The warmer the water, the deeper the water you need to fish. Early morning/ evening are best unless you have a guide with hot spots to get you on the fish. Bring water, snacks, and good attitudes to achieve best results.

You just have to move around and have a fish finder to make sure you are on the schools.

Worth every penny to have an experienced guide. The float trip was so much nicer than just a wade trip.

I would start with a guided outing to learn where the fish are and what the fish a biting. When you see it with your own eyes, it is different than reading about it on the internet.

Fish for striped, hybrid and spotted bass because you will easily catch catfish.

Bundle up warm and bring snacks if you get hungry. You’ll need a cooler with ice if you want to keep your fish. You can get your fishing license the night before online for only $5. Super easy process and well worth the experience. Expect to go a little later (7:30 AM) because the sun is rising later this time of year.

Let Jonathan guide you. He was EXCELLENT. He put us on the fish the entire time. His knowledge of the lake enabled us to catch fish when other boats weren't . Great trip!

Book with Captain Cy (Extreme Stripers Guide Service). Show up and Cy will put you on fish. Just bring snack, drink, rain gear, sunscreen and appropriate clothing. Cy will do the rest.
