The early morning and night time striper bite should continue to be good into August. The fish are hitting live baits and jigs fished 30-70 ft down in deep water associated with boat harbors, and the river channel near Cowan's Ford Dam. During the middle of the day, stripers can be found in the main river and major creek channels near the south end of the lake. They may be just above the thermacline 35-45 ft deep, or holding near the bottom 60-70 ft deep.
