March 23, 2023 - Texas Parks and Wildlife fishing reports are updated each week, usually by Thursday morning. The reports are compiled by an outside contractor who receives the information from bait shops, marinas and fishing guides. Only the local lakes are listed below.

Toledo Bend

GOOD. Water stained; 62-68 degrees; 2.17 feet below pool. GOOD. The water level is 169.86 with both generators running 24 hours. Water temperature at the dam is 62 degrees. North of the three-mile Pendleton bridge, temperatures have been running 65-68 degrees. Good numbers of bass have been caught on bladed jigs in colors of black/blue,  INCOMPLETE LIST!

Sam Rayburn

GOOD. Water stained; 62 degrees; 0.29 feet below pool. Dogwood bloom is usually the environmental indicator for the crappie, but after the cold fronts the spawn has been pushed back. Male crappie can be caught wading in the cypress trees, with the females slowly coming in. Male bass are shallow on beds, most females are on staging points waiting for the water to warm. Trick worms will catch shallow fish, and spinner baits and crankbaits will get the fish in deeper water. Catfish are moving into the shallows from the river. White bass are in the river on roadrunners and small plastics. Report by Lynn Atkinson, Reel Um N Guide Service.


GOOD. Water lightly stained; 55 degrees. Cold weather dropped the water temperature 10 degrees. This seemed to hold back the females. Buck bass are on beds, but some moved off to deeper water. Typical lures for bedding bass are creatures, lizards, craws in red colors, or flake. Try weightless if possible, but use 1/8th ounce Texas rig if needed. The crappie population is good. Catfish are slow. Report by Eric Wolfe, NacoTack Fishing Services.


GOOD. Water clear; 64-68 degrees; 0.08 feet above pool. Largemouth bass are good on beds and along the grass edges. Crappie fishing is starting to improve as fish group up on brush and timber 10-20 feet. Report by Blake Oestreich, Brushbuster Guide Service.
