Anyone ever do any fishing in Lexington Reservoir? I'm interested in giving my new inflatable a quick sea trial and am considering a trip up there this weekend. Any advice/experience is welcomed!

I have not fished Lexington in a long time but it use to be one of my regular haunts. I believe these days you need to have boats and float tubes inspected before launching?

That said there are a few spots I found holding bass. One is the cove to the left of the launch ramp when the water is up. Then if you drive past the launch ramp and find any creeks feeding into the lake. Parking is limited but those creeks will clear first and fish stack up in them. I use to get lots of trout and bass in the creeks even when the lake was muddy. I've waded the creek all the way on the back side where the water district reservoir feeds into the lake with good success a few times. That creek is hit or miss as the ground is soft and water flow changes the creek every year. In the summer bass hold deep off steep rocky banks. I used spinning gear and soft plastics to get down to them. My favorite color in the summer was salt and pepper, reapers and robo worms salt and pepper with a chartreuse tail.
