Largemouth bass fishing is good to excellent for numbers of fish. Florida-strain largemouths were introduced 1991. Redear and redbreast sunfish are underutilized at Lake Cisco.

TIPS & TACTICS
This would be a great place to take children fishing for sunfish with minnows, nightcrawlers, or mealworms. Largemouth bass can be caught at the lower end around the large boulders and points or in the shallow, more off-colored, waters of the north arm or Sandy Creek. Fall bass fishing with buzzbaits can be heart-stopping. Spring fishing with worms or jigs flipped into willow trees, or hard and soft jerkbaits fished along the rocky and brush-covered coves, is hard to beat.
FISHING COVER / STRUCTURE
The steep-sided nature of Lake Cisco provides windy-weather fishing opportunities. Willow trees in the upper end of the north arm and the Sandy Creek arm line the creek channel. The reservoir is also loaded with dead flooded brush, boat docks, and rocky bluffs and points.
