Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 17)

EXCELLENT. slightly stained; 87 degrees; 0.37 feet below pool. Hybrids and white bass are good at daylight on midlake points and drop offs along sandy flats throughout the dam area, Crappie Island, Key Ranch and the spillway humps in 13-22 feet. Cast spinners and slabs and look for schooling fish on these flats as well as deeper seawalls and shorelines. Then fish any hump in 17-25 feet throughout the lake to find fish stacked up in schools as the day heats up. Use spinnerbaits or drop a slab down to the bottom and work it fast up and down and the fish will hit it immediately. Also throwing out a slab and reeling it back with a slow retrieve is also working well. The evening bite from 5-9 p.m has also been very good. Hit up seawalls close to points in depths of 1-18 feet and cast rattle traps, spoons, slabs or sassy shads to get the hybrids to bite. The crappie bite has been challenging. Now Target crappie with small jigs in 5-12 feet under bridge pylons, hidden brush piles throughout the lake or under docks. Limits are being reported, although guides have been reporting very tough conditions with smaller sized fish being caught. Report by Brent Herbeck, Herbeck’s Lonestar Fishing Guide Service. The water temperature ranges from mid to upper 80s, and is slightly stained to stained heading south to north. Blue catfish are still in the deeper water with the best action on main lake humps in 12-24 feet with cut shad. During the dog days of summer try floating a bait across deep water in 15-30 feet, suspend the bait 2-5 feet down from the surface of the water to fish the upper column of the water. Channel catfish can be caught in most any cove or point on the lake with punch bait, cut bait, earthworms or shrimp. Report by Jason Barber, Kings Creek Adventures.
