Diving birds marking feeding schools ...

TPWD says that striped bass and white bass are good on live bait and topwater baits when fish are near the surface. Diving birds are marking feeding schools on the surface throughout the lake. Use electronics to mark schools along the river channel and flats, where schools are on the move following baitfish. Largemouth bass are fair for anglers fishing Texas-rigged plastic worms and diving crankbaits in 16-28′ of water. Some shallow water action is happening early in the day for those throwing topwaters, Chatterbaits, and Pop-R style poppers. Crappie are fair on minnows by boathouses, timber and brush piles in 15-25′ of water. Water Temp: 82-86 degrees, slightly stained.

Teal tips ...

Lynn Burkhead, Herald Democrat, suggests that while drab colored teal and mallard hen decoys are obvious choices right now because of the early autumn plumage of migrating ducks, don’t overlook tossing out two or three colorful blue-winged or green-winged teal drake decoys. While no September duck has any real color on their bodies right now, the extra cover can give hunters just enough decoy spread visibility to lure in a flock of teal for some solid early morning shooting action.

Dove action, anyone?

North Texas Outfitters owner and lead guide Dakota Stowers continues to report good dove shooting near Waurika, Okla. As has happened often since the Sept. 1st opener, a number of NTO clients this week have continued to find good shooting action for mourning doves and white-winged dove.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 21)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 80 degrees; 1.70 feet below. Striped bass are good scattered from shallow flats to deeper water biting on slabs. Some topwater action early in the morning, and midday. Sand bass are mixed in with the stripers on shallow flats. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass are great on live shad fishing main lake flats and secondary ledges in 30-40 feet of water. A lot of smaller fish with the occasional big fish, the size will improve as the weather cools off. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are slow with the amount of shad in the lake making it tough to fool them. Still off the banks in 8-15 feet of water fishing soft plastics late in the day and topwaters the first couple hours of the day. Key in on underwater points and brush piles using electronics. Blue and channel catfish are great on flats in 20-30 feet of water moving shallower as the water temperature cools off using cut shad and prepared baits. Trophy blue catfish season is just around the corner. Crappie are mostly undersized with better fish mixed in as you move around. Target roaming fish with electronics fishing the tops of brush piles in 10-15 feet of water. Minnows mainly and a jig if you get them biting well.
