the campgrounds at paint creek are nice. hot showers and some spots with shade. the shade spots fill up first . around the campgrounds are some good spots for crappie. the lake is full of catfish. the saugeye i would try the spillway which is a good place to catch crappie and cats as well. good luck. let us know how you do.

If it is cloudy, fish near any rock walls that have drop offs. If it is sunny, then you will need to fish deep; preferrably in the channel.
