Excellent crappie fishing. Most of the catches are being taken from schools suspended over creek channels around mid lake. Small minnows and tiny jigs are the key. Some success by striper fishermen using live bait and large bucktails in the main river channel and below Gaston dam. One report had large school of stripers in Pea Hill Creek, taking jigging spoons. Some good white perch are reported from the main lake and from Pea Hill Creek.
