Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 20)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 75-76 degrees; 2.05 feet low. Bass fishing has been slow due to the Fall turnover, but should improve very soon with the cooler weather approaching. Bass are liking white or chartreuse chatterbaits, shad colored squarebills, jerkbaits, and wacky rigged senkos in shallow water. Crappie are very good on jigs and minnows in brush piles and standing timber in 15-20 feet of water. Catfish are excellent on self baited holes in 20-35 feet of water.
