Toledo Bend Lake

Fishing Report from TPWD (May 18)

GOOD. Water stained; 70-73 degrees; 0.67 feet low. The water level is 171.7 with one generator running 24 hours. Water temperature in the mid lake area is 70-73 degrees. The back feeder creeks are stained, but the shallow flats and main lake are clear. Bass are moving around in submerged vegetation and structures. Try casting topwater imitations like popping frogs, buzz baits, spinnerbaits, wacky worms, senko style baits, flukes, lizards and don’t forget them swim jigs. Crappie are relocating to deeper water. When you see the Magnolia trees starting to blossom that is an indicator that the temperature is almost right for the bluegill to spawn. You can catch a bluegill using live crickets, grasshoppers, earthworms and small surface floating spiders and poppers. The shad spawn is still working, so follow the shad and you will find the bass. Typically, the shad are triggered to start their spawn when the water temperature ranges between 68-76 degrees. Laying their eggs on wooden structures and wooden bulkheads in shallow waters. Threadfin and gizzard shad play an important role in freshwater ecosystems, and by extension, are important to fishermen. The Catfish are biting on a slip cork rig in 2-4 feet of water from first light to 8:30 a.m. using shrimp, live or frozen shad, chicken livers and punch baits. Summer is here, time to get those kayaks or canoes out and get the family together to go fishing or exploring on beautiful Toledo Bend Lake! Remember to always keep your life jacket on while on the water and don’t forget to fasten that engine kill switch lanyard to your life jacket if you are operating a motorized vessel on the water. Play it safe on the water, always inform your loved ones or a friend of your expected return time to port or home. Good luck and tight lines!
