Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 9)

FAIR. Water slightly stained; 76 degrees; 0.58 feet high. Largemouth bass are good in clearer water skirting vegetation and mid-depth brush around 14 feet on Carolina rigs, deeper larger crankbait, and jigs. Striped bass are slow moving fishing mid lake and deeper than any other time of year. White bass are fair in deep brush, especially around islands of vegetation using Alabama rigs. Crappie are good preferring jigs over minnows in shallower over brush and using docks. Channel and blue catfish are fair on stinkbait.
