Bass are picking up! Anglers are catching bass between 3-5 pounds. The bass are in top water early in the morning, and then move 30-40 ft down by the afternoon. Plastics, and bluegill type lures are working best. Try fishing near the islands or inside coves.

We are starting to see more striper come in! Anglers are catching striper between 4-6 pounds. Cut bait, and flies are recommended for catching striper. Once we start stocking trout it is best to use lures that replicate trout.

Anglers are catching many catfish between 5-12 pounds! Stink bait, cut bait and night crawlers work best for catfish. Try fishing near the dams and inside coves. Richard Holmes of Beaumont caught a 9.57 pound catfish and an 11.13 pound catfish! He was fishing with nightcrawlers inside a cove.

Anglers are catching many panfish on night crawlers, mealworms. Panfish have been seen by the dams, and inside coves.

There were no reports of trout caught this week. Typical bait for trout is Powerbait, night crawlers and mini jigs.
