If your facing the water at the ramp ,go right around the corner, fish around the small house and the coves there and the opposite side. Anywhere you see pads should hold fish.

Smith & Sayles has some good fish. Sadly, there are few weeds left in the lake. They did chemical weed eradication two years in a row a few years back. And then they ended up draining the lake for dam repair. The lake stayed drained down for quite a while, so any remaining weeds in less than 6 feet of water also went bye bye  o/

Since they filled it back up 2 or 3 years ago (maybe it's been longer than that?), the fishing has still been good, but many of the areas that used to hold good fish are now barren. So I had to learn the lake all over again. Unfortunately, with it being an hour from me, I don't get there as often as I'd like to. So I'm still in the process of finding good fish hangouts.

In addition to the areas @toadhunter mentioned, also try across from the ramp to the right, where you'll find a lot of good boulders.
