Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 13)

FAIR. 68-72 degrees; 4.09 feet low. Because the water level is 167.9, the generators are not running. And, there has not been any rain this week! The water is clear in the main lake and feeder creeks. Water temperature in the main lake is running 68-72 degrees, and further back up in the creeks is 68 degrees. Largemouth bass fishing has been fair in deep water with crankbaits, spinners, worms, and drop shots on the points leading to creeks. The crappie bite is still in deep water (20 – 25 ft.) on the vertical structure using small minnows and jigs. The catfish bite has been good on punch baits and fresh shad. Watch your Moon phase chart or app for your best bite and times for this week. Good luck and tight lines! Safety Reminder: Everyone needs to wear their life jackets (PFDs). Inspect your lanyard (for wear and tear) on your engine kill switch before leaving the boat ramp to ensure they are in good operating conditions.
