I haven't fished for stripers in lakes but I know that in the summer they will usually be near a dam or the main current source, and usually in deep water. In the Spring they will migrate up the lake and spawn shallow just like largemouth. If you're fishing a lake that has trout, use trout imitating lures because thats gonna be their main forage, otherwise you can use your regular striper lures, live bait, or cut bait that the stripers regurarly feed on in that body of water. This is based on the reports I've read from Liberty Reservoir, MD.
This information applies to Lake Pleasant, where I normally fish here in Phoenix Arizona.
