I set out to fish the upper end of Fayetteville county reservoir to gain some confidence fishing fresh water as I fish primarily salt. I hit all the coves on the northern end to see if I could find any bait or grass. I found plenty of grass but very little bait around it. The best cove I found was just at the launch and was holding some shad. I hooked up with one decent bass all day but its still better than being at work.
