Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report January 2003

Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report January 2003
The lake is at 170.62 ft, one and half foot below high pool. Temperature is running in the lower 50s. One generator operating 24/7 and seven gates open one foot. The lake is starting clear but still remains stained to muddy on the north end and clearing further south. The backs of major feeder creeks remain muddy. We ended out the year with a lot of fresh water coming into the lake. Normal rainfall for December is approximately 4 ½ inches and we had over 14 inches. Alt copy goes hereNot many anglers on the lake this past week because of the cold weather and subsequently not many reports. Black Bass have moved into their typical winter pattern. Best pattern is to work ledges dropping off into deep water with slab spoons, Rinky Dink tail spinners, and jigs. Key is to fish slow. If you catch one, you should catch some more. White Bass are making their annual migration up the river. Road Runners, lip-less crank baits in chrome and Rinky Dink tail spinners working best. White’s will only get better as the water clears. Crappie have slowed with all the muddy water. Should also pick back up as water clears. Some catfish being caught on trot-lines with cut bait.
