Fishing Report from TPWD (Aug. 4)

Good. Water stained; 81 degrees; .03 feet high. Fishing should really pick up in the next couple of weeks. Largemouth bass are good shallow flipping in the bushes, and on points and ledges using topwater frogs and jigs. Black bass are schooling chasing the shad around the lake. Crappie are good in the 14-22 feet of water working brush piles using jigs, but most success comes with shiners.
