Fishing Report on Texas Lakes


Lake Meredith: GOOD. Water stained; 80 degrees; 53.99 feet low. As the dog days of summer set in, try fishing a little deeper. Bass are good on minnows and artificial baits. Catfish are good on live, stinks, and punch baits. Crappie are excellent with minnows being the ticket here, but small jigs and small crankbaits will work too. White bass are excellent on minnows, grubs and crankbaits. Trout are slow, some still being caught on power baits and small spinners. Walleye are excellent with many limits on minnows, crawlers, crankbaits, grubs, and jig heads tipped with minnows. Please be safe, and watch weather reports. Life vests save lives.
