Generation has varied some everyday this week but with mild temperatures this weekend, it looks like they’re going to run it all day at least Saturday and Sunday. Not very hard though which should make any type of fishing pretty good. read more…

The Green Fish of Beaver Lake

Posted by Scott Bice on January 9th, 2014

I have held off writing anything on the “Bass” of Beaver Lake as there are so many articles on bass fishing and each seems to always spark debate and controversy and an even heated argument that to me was just something I did not want to have to argue over or defend my writings on. I am hesitant to write about them but as they are present and so popular I came to simple conclusion I should add them. That and I have had many friends ask me to. I ask that you take this as my opinion based on my observations and fishing style. It may not be yours or your style, it may however help you and you may be able to relate to some of it. My goal is to hopefully help people to catch more fish and enjoy the lake more as many people seem to have to catch a fish to have a good day. read more…


Bagnell Dam

Posted by John Neporadny, Jr. on January 8th, 2014

Finding active bass in the dead of winter can be a numbing experience. Freezing temperatures, blustery winds and a vast body of water in which fish congregate in a small area can leave anglers feeling cold and frustrated after a day on their favorite lake. read more…


Surviving brutally cold conditions

Posted by John Berry on January 8th, 2014

When I got up this morning it was one degree and there were lake wind advisories for the fifteen to twenty five mile an hour winds coming from the North West. This made the wind chill drop down to minus eighteen when I checked. The predicted high for the day was seven degrees. To make the conditions a bit more interesting there was a two inch layer of snow and ice covering everything in sight. read more…
