When the water's up the way it is now, it's kinda tough without a boat. Consider renting one in a couple of weeks when the water warms a bit. Ask the guys at the center for panfish advice and you'll catch all you want, especially white perch.
You are not alone, Bobby. I fished up there all my life and Stingray is right: Muddy water=no fish. Tough water to fish. Boats are great, but the reg's are tough. The most fun I had fishing was to wade out in shallow coves during the summer, in the morning and evening hours and fish the panfish and small Bass as they cruise into the shallows. Lots of fun, but not big fish.
Have a good one,
I've had a lot of luck trolling back and forth across the closest bridge to the fishing center and between the main shore and island to the right of the bridge as you are approaching it.
Have caught crappie, perch, and pike (I think just know it had long snout and nasty looking teeth) have even snagged a small bass or two.
