Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 21)

EXCELLENT. Water normal stain; 81-84 degrees; 3.63 feet low. Fishing continues to be excellent with patterns similar. Crappie are excellent in brush piles in 10-14 feet of water minnows and small jigs. The fish are starting to transition into the fall pattern. White bass and hybrid bass are excellent, surfacing on top chasing shad. Rattletraps and spoons are working good, but once the fish quit schooling, go to humps using a silver slab. Largemouth bass are excellent shallow feeding early in the mornings and late in the evenings, using chatterbaits and buzzbaits against rocks and docks. Some fish on brush but the better quality is coming shallow. Catfish are good on humps with live shad. Report by Kyle Miers, Lake Country Outfitters.
