Fishing Report on Texas Lakes


Lake Meredith: GOOD. Water stained; 75-80 degrees; 53.80 feet low. Bass are good on minnows and artificial baits. Catfish are good on live, stink and punch baits. Crappie are excellent with the ticket being minnows, but jigs, grubs and other artificials will get it done too. White bass are excellent on minnows, crankbaits, and any type of artificial. Trout are slow, slow, slow, some still being caught on power baits and small spinners. Walleye are excellent on minnows with a crawler harness, crankbaits, grubs, and other artificials. Overall the bite is in full swing and many anglers are catching limits anywhere from 5-40 feet of water. Please be safe, watch weather reports. Life vests save lives. Hope this helps you enjoy Lake Meredith. Report by Kenneth Wysong, SharKens Honey hole.
