August 10, 2022 - 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. If you would like to see the fishing report for other Texas lakes, clink the following link https://tpwd.texas.gov/fishboat/fish/action/reptmap.php?EcoRegion=PW.

Toledo Bend

GOOD. Water stained; 81-83 degrees; 4.02 feet low. The water level is 168.0 with both generators running from 1:00-7:00 P.M. Water temperature at the dam is 81-83 degrees with surface temperature around 83. The back feeder creeks are clear, and the main lake is clear with no rain this week. It is the same summer hot pattern. Bass are in the same pattern with early morning topwater bite with topwater baits like Pop Rs, tiny torpedoes, buzz baits, popping frogs, flukes, and spooks. Then mid-morning as the fish go deeper to 12-30 feet of water transition to 8-12 inch ribbon tail worms in plum apple, June bug, or June bug red. Carolina rigs for bass have been working with four or six inch worms in chartreuse/pepper and Tequila Sunrise, and ⅜-½ ounce swimbaits in the ditches and drains in white, black or blue with a green pepper head and skirt tipped with a speed craw worm or paddle tail plastics.Black bass, yellow bass, and catfish are in the main lake biting vertical jigging spoons in 1/2 ounce or 3/4 ounce.Crappie bite is hit-or-miss. The lake is at summer drawdown level exposing many underwater boating hazards so be very careful and idle into unknown areas. Summer is here with triple digit weather, so remember to wear light clothing, sunglasses, and sunscreen. When on the water it is important to stay hydrated so that you do not experience heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Remember to always keep your life jacket on while on the water, and to fasten the engine kill switch lanyard to your person when operating a motorized vessel on the water. Life jackets must be worn for those who are aged 13 and under while on the water or near the water. Play it safe on the water, always inform your loved ones or a friend of your expected return time to port or home. Good luck and tight lines!

FAIR. Water stained; 89 degrees; 3.87 feet low. Largemouth bass are good early in the morning with topwater frogs along grass ledges, and off point and drops with Carolina rigs and crankbaits. White bass are good schooling on the flats chasing shad. Crappie are fair on brush piles with live minnows. Bluegill are mixed in with the crappie biting on worms. Catfish are in creek channels off ledges and brush piles in 15 feet of water. Navigate with caution while the water level decreases. Report by Lynn Atkinson, Reel Um N Guide Service.

Naconiche

GOOD. Water clear to stained; 89 degrees; 1.5 feet low. The lake has settled into a typical summer pattern. Good numbers of bass schooling up over deeper water. The shad are small, so down-size your presentations to match the natural bait. Most fish are suspended just above the thermocline depth, so count your lure down to the thermocline depth and keep it in the strike zone. A Mag-worm in Junebug color is getting bit in 8-12 feet of water. Stay hydrated out there, and sunscreen is a must. The Crappie population is good. Catfish are slow. Report by Eric Wolfe, NacoTack Fishing Services.

White bass are good in the lake off points with chrome jigs. Crappie are good on brush piles with live minnows. Bluegill are mixed in with the crappie biting on worms.

Naconiche

GOOD. Water clear to stained; 89 degrees; 1.5 feet low. Lake has settled into a typical summer pattern that should stay constant throughout the summer months. Good numbers of bass schooling over deeper water. The shad are small, so down-size your presentation to match.

A Mag-worm in Junebug color is getting bit in 8-12 feet of water. Try casting into shade provided by standing timber or shoreline trees. The Crappie population is good. Catfish are slow.
