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 (May 18)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 73 degrees; 0.34 feet low. The striped bass bite is excellent early morning with topwaters, switching to swimbaits as the fish move deeper as the day warms. Watch for egrets to point out the fish mid lake working their way to the dam. The slab bite should pick up soon. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors.
