Fishing Report from TPWD (May 22)

GOOD. Water clear; 74 degrees; 0.01 feet below pool. Water temperatures are in the low to middle 70s. Water is clearing, but there is still a lot of debris in the water especially on the upper ends. Be careful navigating. Sand bass continue to be good on slabs on feeding flats early and late. Best sand bass reports are coming from Indian Harbor and near Decordova. Striped bass to 12 pounds are possible on live bait and trolled Alabama rigs mainly on the lower ends. Some top water action is available early on feeding flats by Blue Water Shores. Yellow and blue catfish are good on the upper ends on cut shad. Largemouth bass are fair to good on crankbaits and soft plastics worked near creek entrances. Some good topwater action for largemouth bass is possible near main lake points. Crappie are moving to their post spawn locations on structure and are good to excellent on small jigs and minnows.
