Toledo Bend Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 16)

FAIR. Water stained; 86-88 degrees; 2.84’ low. The lake is still getting back to normal, and it will be a while, but on the bright side, water clarity improved mid-lake to south. Black bass are good with topwater, jigs, wacky rigs, Carolina rigged worms with a 4-foot leader, and Carolina rigged baby brush hog in light green illuminated colors. Boat equipment is as essential as ever since the storm reset most patterns and piles. White bass are very active between the depths of 14-20 feet. Crappie are good with some structure shuffles after the storm, normally around 8-10 feet. Bream are good with small jigs and crickets. Channel and blue catfish are fair on stinkbait.
