Toledo Bend Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 1)

FAIR. Water slightly stained; 82-83 degrees; 1.21’ low. Black bass are good staying shallow early and on cloudy days. Water clarity varies by location as the south is clear and better for the daytime bite. Wacky rigs, square billed crankbaits, and topwaters remain the best to tie on. Striped bass remain fair to slow in deep water. White bass are good schooling late in the afternoons in the many creeks and caught on spoons. Crappie are fair suspended over their brush piles in 25-26 feet, suspended 13-14 feet from surface using live shiners. Channel and blue catfish are fair on stinkbait.
