Easy access with boat ramp on the East side of lake. Absolutely a great largemouth lake. It's gotten a lot of attention during the spring/summer of 2013. However, I have fished it 10+ times this year and caught a 20" or better largemouth all but once. A special kayak secret as well - there is a road that goes over the lake towards the North end. You can't get a boat under the bridge & there is no boat ramp on that North section. You might be able to get a kayak under the bridge but I doubt it. You can put a kayak in on that North side if you are willing to work through a little muck. It's worth it - great bass fishing on the East side of that North end. And no good way to get there with a boat or from the bank..
