July 1, 2015 (Lakeside) – The Lake Jennings Fish Report for July is out-with plenty of tips and news for fishing enthusiasts. The lake is open every day in July. Here are a few highlights:

·         The lake is adding 1,000 pounds of trophy-sized catfish this week weighing up to 10 pounds.

·         Trout have been biting from the T-dock and in deep waters at Halfmoon Cove, Shadow Cove and Sentry Cove.

·         Bluegill are reported biting in Halfmoon Cove.

·         Stable weather on the way is expected to improve bass fishing.

·         You can rent boats or launch your own during night-fishing season (just bring a lantern).

·         Soaking mackerel and chicken livers at night is working to catch catfish.

·         Best trout lures are nightcrawlers, PowerBait, PowerWorms and Mini Jigs.

·         Best bass lures are creature baits, drop-shot, crawdads and swim baits.

·         Panfish love mealworms and nightcrawlers; you can catch them in the coves.

·         A horseshow tournament will be held at the campground for registered campers; reserve space by July 11th at www.lakejennings.org
