Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 22)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 83 degrees; 0.93 feet above. The sand bite is similar to the winter pattern with fish holding deeper in 27-35 feet off drop-offs. Landing a few catches of catfish and crappie that are mixed in. Good electronics are the key to finding the fish while they are holding deep. The bite is light so using a sensitive rod and stinger hook will help. Bass are good on rocky points with drop-offs in 15-20 feet using Carolina or Texas rigs, and chatterbaits. Smallmouth bass population is good. Catfish are good. Lake is in really good shape for this time of year, and all boat ramps are open. Report by Omar Cotter, Luck O’the Irish Fishing Guide Service.
