Twin Buttes suffered extremely low levels until fall 2004 when it caught over 20 feet of water. Fish populations will be in a recovery state for a year or two. Fishing for largemouth bass, white bass, and crappie is fair; catfish are poor.
Most of the cover at Twin Buttes is in the form of flooded terrestrial vegetation. Structure is made up of mud flats, drop-offs, submerged humps, creek channels, a few areas of rocks, and a long rip-rapped dam.
Tips & Tactics
White bass are caught trolling artificial baits in open water near drop-offs, submerged humps, and creek channels. Crappie are caught with jigs and minnows fished near humps and creek channels. Catfish are caught all over the reservoir using live and prepared baits. Largemouth bass are caught using live and artificial baits in the flooded terrestrial vegetation, along the rip-rap, and off the drop-offs and humps.
