Fishing Report from TPWD (Jan. 19)

GOOD. Water stained; 52 degrees; 3.83 feet low. The weather should cooperate this weekend with mild winds and rising temperatures after the cold front. Largemouth bass are slow on crankbaits and underspins are fished very slowly. Sand and hybrid bass are good on the deadstick technique, fair on slabs. Both work best when fished with little or no movement in cold water. Don't be afraid to move around to different depths as the fish are doing the same thing. Keep an eye out for Gulls to help you find the fish. Blue Catfish are good on cut gizzard shad, drifting deeper water near the river channel. Crappie are fair on minnows and jigs in deeper water near docks and the HWY 380 bridge. Report by Keith Bunch, Lake Bridgeport Guide Service.
