TIPS & TACTICS
Striped bass fishing can be very good on this long, sinuous reservoir. Downrigging jigs and crankbaits as well as drifting live shad can be very effective. The mid-lower lake seems to be best. Largemouth bass fishing can be excellent around any of the 1000-plus boat docks and piers. Crankbaits, jigs, and worms are top bets. Catfishing is good throughout the reservoir. The stained water and abundant timber along the Brazos River channel makes for excellent trotlining. Crappie can be caught using live minnows fished around docks, submerged brush, and bridge pilings. White bass are best during the spring in the river above the lake. Small jigs and spinners work best. Sunfish can be caught using live worms or crickets fished around docks, especially in early summer.
FISHING REPORT
GOOD. Water slightly stained; 72 degrees; 0.23 low. Largemouth bass are good on jerk baits, spinnerbaits, and Texas-rigged plastic worms in 10-24’ near boathouses, submerged timber, and rock ledges. Crappie fishing is good around brush piles and boat docks with minnows and jigs. Catfishing is good with cut bait or shrimp. White bass are good using slabs, small crankbaits, and swimbaits. Stripers are good with live bait or trolling with swimbaits along the main lake channel in 20-35”. Watch for birds diving on feeding schools.
