Hybrid striped bass and white bass fishing are rated good. Fishing for largemouth bass and crappie can depend on season and water level.
Lake Graham is a power plant reservoir, but the plant operates only when demand is high so it does not provide consistent winter fishing. The hot-water discharge is located on the Eddleman portion of the reservoir. The lake offers a variety of cover including smartweed, bulrush, pondweed and lily pads. Anglers can also find buttonbush, boat docks, riprap, standing timber, brush, and black willow trees. Shoreline is rocky.
The hot-water discharge is an excellent area to fish during the winter, especially for hybrid striped bass and white bass. Hybrid stripers are also consistently caught in the equalization channel between Graham and Eddleman and around the dam on the Graham side. For bass, with the variety of cover, a number of techniques can be productive, including flipping, dock fishing, topwater, and spinnerbaits.
