Bass Are Biting

The final trout plant took place on Friday April 5th. The gradually warming water is pushing the trout bite west and south into deeper water accessible along steeper shores. Big fish of the week belonged to Richard Meadows of San Marcos and weighed 5.90#s. Mr. Meadow's trout was caught on an inflated night-crawler on Senior Shoreline.

Small to medium sized bass are being reported. Largemouth Bass can be found around structure and respond well to crawdads, frog poppers, and dark colored plastics.
Crappie are moving in tight to shore and are being caught on jigs and live Golden Shiners along the southern shore.

The first catfish plant of the season is scheduled for May 10th. Catfish can be found throughout the lake and bite well on cut mackerel or chicken liver, as well as dough-bait.
