Fishing Report from TPWD (Jan. 26)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 45-48 degrees; 1.08 feet low. Striped bass are good some days and great others. Due to the cooler water temperatures best success comes from dead sticking using pink and clear five-inch flukes with one ounce jig heads. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass are good in 40-65 feet of water deadsticking with flukes and one ounce jig heads, or drifting main lake flats to catch those suspended in 35-50 feet of water. Catfish are slow, patience and anchor fishing with fresh cut shad or perch in 70 feet of water can bring some in the boat. No report of crappie, other than people are on the lake catching them. Report by Trey Franklin, Tight Lines Guide Service.
