User Discussion:
Averhoff Reservoir is characterized by mud/gravel banks with overhanging brush, dead standing timber and no aquatic vegetation.
Bass anglers are most successful during the fall, winter, and spring months. Topwater baits such as buzzbaits work well in the early morning and late evening. Texas and Carolina rigged worms and lizards are also popular, and effective when fished around the overhanging brush. Catfish anglers can find channel catfish throughout the lake. Stinkbait and cutbait work well. Crappie anglers should try fishing deep structure in the fall and winter with small jigs fished on light line and tackle. During the spring, fish structure in 3 to 6 feet with small spinners and jigs.
