TPWD will be taking public comment on the following proposed changes to 2020-2021 Statewide Waterfowl Hunting, with input to be considered before any action by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission at its March 26 public hearing:
• Establish seasons and bag limits for the take of migratory game birds for 2020-21
• Decrease the daily bag limit for scaup from three to one in all zones
• Decrease the daily bag limit for light goose daily bag limit from twenty to ten during the regular season in both zones
• Shift goose seasons (and light goose conservation season) in the Western Zone one week later than in previous years
• Shift snipe hunting season dates two weeks later than in previous years

The public is encouraged to provide comment on the proposed regulation changes.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 17)

GOOD. Water stained; 83 degrees; 4.27 feet above pool. The bite for all species seems to improve when the water is being generated. This stirs the water, breaking up the thermocline. Bass are slow in shallow water with many smaller fish being caught on frogs, and spinnerbaits. Deeper bass bite is fair with Carolina rigs. Crappie are slow in the morning, but improve midday. Catfish are all over the lake in 20 feet of water and in 12 feet of water in the creek channels. White bass are on points in the south end of the lake near the dam. Report by Captain Lynn Atkinson, Reel Um N Guide Service. As the lake continues to drop fish are going to be moving to traditional summer locations pending the thermocline depth. Bass are good early morning on shallow main lake points with medium or deep diving crankbaits, and topwaters. Main lake ledges with Carolina rig shaky head and spoons. Brush piles shallower than the thermocline with Texas rigs, jigs or Carolina rigs. The thermocline is actively fluctuating and will continue to do so while lake level changes. Navigate with caution watching for floating debris, trees, and stumps. Report by Hank Harrison, Double H Precision Fishing.
