Hagg, Hagg, Hagg. You think you would see a lot of cranky ugly women with a name like that. Mebe thats where they drop the bodies??? As most post say, fish the dam wall, use worms, powerbait, drop shot, small spinners, crappie jigs. powerbait, powerbait, powerbait. Lakes full o' pelletheads, powerbait for guaranteed, easy, no skill, no effort fishing. Thats what the jar should say, "Powerbait, take the fishing out of fishing!" :shock:

Powereggs on a 2-3 foot leader connected to a small barrel swivel with a 1/4 oz egg sinker right behind it. if you want to use this rig, drive across the dam towards boat ramp c (pier), then stop at the first stop you can. There will be a steep drop off made of pure sand, it stands out. If the water is much lower, walk from that sand point straight to the water and fish there. Cast 30 feet out and set your rod in a holder, or a hole, or a stick. Reel in slack until it isn't completely tight, but there is a tiny belly/bend. Once it's settled, if the line tightens, its a fish, it it becomes even more slackened, its a fish. If the sand spot doesn't work very well, try the bank at boat ramp c or boat ramp a. If you don't get any bites within 20 minutes, switch a spot.

Everato, I fished there this morning. Unfortunately, this week...from monday...has been my worst week of fishing. Today was my first day of not a single fish all season...and only one small nibble early in the morning. I'm also a bank fisherman. I use berkley power eggs exclusively. After many years of worms and power bait...the eggs easily out fish both. (my experience) AND...more economical since you never throw your bait off...or loose it in the cuckleburrs. You can catch multiple fish using the same eggs.
Use a light rig...maybe 6 to 8lb line..and 2 to 4 lb leader. I use a half to 3 quarter oz slider (oval) sinker. Use a smaller hook...sorry i don't pay attention to size designations...but I call it a double egg hook on about a 24 to 30 inch leader. I use 2 different colors on the hook...usually Chartreuse and pink or orange.
Not knowing your level of fishing knowledge I'm sorry if this is too basic...but the concept is to float your hook and bait from the bottom. Be patient...I watch all these "expert" anglers fish one spot about 5 mins and then drive around the lake looking for a spot that will produce a limit within a half hour all the while telling anyone in earshot about how much experience they have. (5 trout limit at Hagg)
I'm sure it has happened...but It's never happened to me, i've never seen it happen....and I fish there almost everyday. (except weekends)
Both boat ramps are usually productive. Find "your spot" and fish...but remember...worst case scenario is that you're outside on the bank of a beautiful lake. Take a lunch!
Good luck
