In Spring, bass use this shallow cover for feeding and spawning, then move to outside structure like ledges, points, islands and creek channels. Hybrid striped bass tend to school, following baitfish as they migrate shallower in Spring and Fall then deeper around river channels during winter and summer months. Catfish fishing can be good year round with the best fishing up lake, during the summer.
