I've only fished for them once out there. I used a drop shot rig with night crawlers and caught more than I wanted to clean. I would imagine the river is bank to bank full of them right now.

You can fish for Tilapia with a standard crappie hook with a weight a foot or so up the line but the best rig I've seen/heard is basically a "heavy drop shot rig" with the hook up a foot or so above the weight. Earth worms for bait although you often catch a couple throwing a crankbait for bass. Squaw is open to bank fishing Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sun. It is open to boats Fri, Sat & Sun.

Make sure you KEEP all you catch! Even if you don't want to clean them, you cannot return them to the water.

I have caught some big ones at Fairfield in my cast net. The fillets looked almost like crappie but tasted terrible. What am I missing?

At the boat ramp only, there is a couple of docks.

Not quite true. They have about a mile or so of the lake shoreline that is accessible through the park on the west side, just south of the boat ramp. Several little pockets and points to fish.
