    “April 23, evening, 10.65 pound (channel catfish) on cut shad at Riverview Park.

    Also the recently stocked crappie have dispersed through the lake and are doing well. (I have caught a few at multiple locations, when cast-netting for shad. I have been fortunate to have a few 6-inch shad swim under the net. What I find interesting is I have yet to have a bass take a free-swimming shad under a float (day break or evening). I know the bass are there because they show up in my net. Just makes me think there is a lot of food. To pass up such a live offering ?

    Last, I let a young boy (under 10) struggle to land a 4-pound cat while his dad captured the moment with his phone. The best being when it finally surfaced.

    Thank you for all the work you do, and then taking the time to put out the fishing report.”

    Largemouth bass and sunfish have been stocked

    Riverview Lake is across Dobson Rd. from Bass Pro Shop. It is a great place to try out your new gear.

    I've tried top water at sun rise, every kind of plastic you can imagine from weightless Senkos to dropshoting lizards, chatterbaits, spinnerbaits, and standard crank baits. Not a single hit on anything. I know the sign says it's got Largemouth in it, but I have to disagree. The guys at Bass Pro across the street say they've been pulling out 4 pounders underneath the bridges (the only structure in the lake), but like I said, I haven't had a single hit...
