I’ve never fished this body of water and it may be in play for me early next week. Anyone have any tips for this lake? How safe is it to run and where to avoid as well? Any info is appreciated.

I haven’t been on it for many years. I remember it has a hot water arm and a cold water arm.
East to run, once out of the launch cove. Hot water arm had loads of hydrilla and some nice deep timbered pockets. We caught fish in the timber on weightless senkos and punching grass with craws. I’m sure there will be some more posts with current info.

Right now it’s fishing a little tough . They have had the stacks off a few months and won’t be back on until mid December. They have pulled the lake down quite a bit cleaning there Scrubbers and cleaning the there waste pits. EPA has been cracking down on Welch , Martin creek and Welch over there waste ponds leaking.

This sounds like a carbon copy report for Lake Welsh.

Forkduc probably Marshall will be the best area.

I'd stay in Longview, I believe it's closer. Nice Hapton in on the NE side of Longview.

Once they crank up the stacks they'll start spawning

Went yesterday, stacks fired back up last Monday. Water was 74 by the hot water outlet, 59 on the cold side of the lake. We fished 6 hrs. caught a 2 good keepers that looked spawned out and 7-8 smalls that were less than 10". All on the hot side of lake.

Was there Saturday. Water was 61 on the inlet side, 63 on the discharge side. Lots of vegetation, but only 3 fish in 4 hours. Lake is very safe to run. We stayed at a Best Western in Longview; nice hotel.

That explains a lot. The water on the hot side was a little stained, they must’ve started letting out hot water Saturday night? It was my first time and my fishin partner said it wasn’t like it normally is for this time of year. We didn’t see any shore birds, bait fish or any fish activity on the top of the water. We went around to the cold side early afternoon and it had warmed up to 62. But we didn’t go all the way back because it got real windy. We did notice the hydrilla was turning brown on that side.
