Annual Prospects Report
Largemouth bass fishing should continue to be good for both legal (greater-than 15-inches) and sublegal (less-than 15-inches) fish. The larger bass are in good condition. Fishing for bluegill and redear sunfish should continue to be good. Most bluegill will be 6 to 8-inches, and there will be some redear sunfish greater than 9-inches. Fishing shoreline areas and coves during April and May with small spinners and small crankbaits, such as artificial crayfish, is a productive method to catch both bass and sunfish. Once shallow waters become warm in June and July, anglers may be more successful using worms and slip bobbers around flooded trees.
Fishing for crappie is good during April and May using minnows and jigs, and fishing can also be good during the fall. Anglers should expect to catch a lot of 7 to 9-inch crappie with some larger crappie caught in the spring. Anglers are encouraged to harvest all sizes of crappie up to their daily limit of 30. Each year Channel catfish are stocked in the fall and fishing for catfish is good. Catfish anglers should try using stink baits or chicken livers, and fishing from shore or along the dam in the evening.
Only pole and line fishing is allowed on Hazel Hill Lake. Outboard motors larger than 10 horsepower may be used, but are required to be operated at no wake speed.
