Species Rating Size Baits, Method, & Location
Bluegill / Redear  Fair  6-10" Try worms, small jigs and spinners fished slowly around structure and along weedlines.
Channel catfish  Fair  15-24" Try shad sides, liver, prepared baits, live bait or worms fished on or near the bottom. The four fish feeders will not be in operation until late April. KDWPT fish samplings have shown that there is a very good channel catfish fishery. Good numbers of 2-5 pound fish are available.
Crappie  Fair  8-14 inches Try minnows or small jigs fished near trees and structure. Some crappie have moved in shallower water to spawn. You might try fishing a jig fished a few feet below a bobber near shoreline spawning areas. Bone Creek supports a good crappie population, with some quality-size fish available.
Largemouth bass  Fair Mostly 8-16 inch fish. Try jigs, plastic baits, stick baits or spinners around weedlines and deep-water structure.
