Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 20)

GOOD. Water stained; 74 degrees; 2.51 feet low. Fishing is still looking the same as we head into the weekend. Largemouth bass continue to feed-up on shad in shallow water. The topwater action is good using topwater frogs and spinnerbaits. Schooling bass are good on crankbaits off the flats in 6-15 feet of water and Carolina jigs in 18-25 feet of water off of points. Crappie continue to migrate to deeper water 20-25 feet and North into the river and creeks. Topwater frog bite is better in the early mornings with a crankbait bite off flats.
