Fishing Report on Texas Lakes


Lake Meredith: GOOD. Water stained; 68-70 degrees; 53.17 feet low. Bass are good in the shallows on minnows and artificial baits. Catfish are good on live, stink and punch baits. Crappie are excellent in 5-30 feet of water on jigs, grubs and artificials, but the main ticket is minnows. Females are egging up real good. Trout are slow with a few catches on power baits and small spinners. Walleye are excellent on minnows, crawlers, crankbaits, grubs, and other artificials. Many are catching limits. Please be safe, watch weather reports. Life vests save lives. Hope this helps you enjoy Lake Meredith. Report by Kenneth Wysong, SharKens Honey hole.
