Lake Jennings Fishing Report

Catfish feeding along the shallow banks are biting on cut mackerel and chicken liver. Anglers reeled in catfish from Siesta Cove and Hermit Cove. The next catfish stocking is the week of July 17th with 2,000 lbs.


Bluegill can be the best fish to catch during the heat of the afternoon. Take a break from fishing bass or catfish, and try dropping your line along the Siesta Cove or Cloister Cove shorelines. The bite has been hot with anglers nearing their limits. You are sure to catch a bluegill if you bait your hook with a wax or meal worm!


Lake Jennings is a drinking water reservoir and as such no body contact is permitted. Do not enter the water at any time. Keep cool by soaking a bandana in water and draping it over your neck or forehead. Mist your clothing and wear light colors.


Abel Bernal of ational City fished with his son and grandchildren on Thursday, catching multiple bluegill in Siesta Cove and a few in Cloister Cove as well. Grady Gralewski reeled in this largemouth bass Sunday afternoon. He was fishing top water from the shoreline.
