ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Lake Livingston is a notable white bass fishery. White bass are plentiful and grow to large sizes. Also notable is the catfish fishery, dominated by blue catfish. Largemouth bass, striped bass, and crappie are less abundant but good catches are possible in areas of the reservoir where habitat is available.
TIPS & TACTICS
White bass are most readily caught in early spring in the many creeks that feed into Lake Livingston. Striped bass can be caught around the 190 bridge area by trolling and vertical jigging spoons or live shad. Largemouth bass are most frequently caught in the bays and creeks from the Kickapoo/Penwaugh area northward. Spring and fall are the most successful seasons for largemouths. Channel and blue catfish can be caught most any time of year on a variety of organic and live baits over the main river channel and in off channel tributaries and creeks.
FISHING REPORT
FAIR. Water lightly stained; 74 degrees; 0.87’ high. Largemouth bass are good going deep around drops and points on Carolina rigged worms, spinners, and bass jigs. Striped bass are slow-moving, deeper, and less active. Crappie are fair on minnows or occasionally jigs when casting across structures. White bass are great sitting on points using small spinners and live bait. Catfish are fair on live baits throughout and excel at night.
