went on fact finding mission... sunrise to 730 am not one rise seen on surface anywhere. No strikes on spinnerbaits..rapalas..blue gill .. no action on anything.. I made approx 500 casts in 3 hrs... nothing. Too bad. This place was a great bass fishery just 3 yrs ago. It will take 3 times that long to bring it back to that good ...if ever..sad.

"I fished for three hours and caught nothing, that must mean the lake is completely dead"

Unless they prvide some structure in this body of water.... the bass won't have a chance

It's gonna be more than a couple of years before anything "catchable" shows up...Sent an email to Thorntons open space and parks dept..structure and vegetation are needed..There are countless dead trees around the immediate area they need to submerge and oxygen.ate the water. I have seen this before.
