Pretty much the entire shore of the reservoir is privately owned and as far as I can find, there is no public boat ramp and only a little bit of shore line fishing. I was able to get my 2 person john boat in by backing my Explorer down a dirt path located just off of Edwards Rd near the Beach St intersection. You can also fish from the shore at the end of this path as well.
The reservoir is divided into two halves, eastern and western halves. If you drop your boat in on Edward Rd, you will be in the northern end of the eastern half. The weeds are very thick up there but you will see a couple of points and drops to fish almost immediately. If you travel down to the southern end you will find all of the submerged trees which didn't produce any results for me. Along the way down you will encounter 3 islands that look like they should produce some bass as well as a few random patches of lilly pads.
To be honest, although I had limited success here, I'd love to give it another shot just because it looks like a bass haven and its just too tempting. I think if I do go back, I'd check out the western half since it gets more sunlight during the early mornings which warms the water more quickly drawing the fish in to shallow waters. If you've had any success here, I'd love to hear about it.
