Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 29)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 81 degrees; 1.19 feet low. Channel catfish are slow while they spawn, but can be caught on small shad and prepared baits in the shallows around brush and stumps. Report by Jeffery Sojourner, Sojourner Fishing. Striped bass and white bass are good moving fast, biting topwaters early in the morning throughout the reservoir in 15-60 feet of water. Lots of smaller sized fish being caught. Catfish are good in 20-50 feet of water on cut bait. Report provided by Kraig Sexton, Sexton’s Guide Service LLC. Granbury has slowed down a little with the hot weather. Bass are around deeper boat docks on Carolina rigged soft plastics, and 3/4 ounce jigs.
