Alan Henry – FAIR. Water clear; 81 degrees; 0.17 low high. Fishing is down due to the recent rains, but the quality of fish being caught is up. Black bass and spotted bass are good with success using earthworms. Fish are schooling up so use depth finders to locate. Fish with jigs and earthworms. Crappie are good on minnows seeking out the structures. Catfish are fair on live bait, cut bait and stink bait.
Hubbard Creek – GOOD. Water clear; 81 degrees; 0.62 feet low. Shad are plentiful and easily found on just about any wind blown main lake point in 15-25 feet of water. White bass are excellent with some surface action this past week. Fish main lake structures in 15-25 feet of water at first light for best success, then go deeper as the heat of the day increases. Best success has come with an oversized rooster tail style bait called the Maindelle All-purpose Lure (MAL lure) worked fairly slowly. Fish were willing to gang up with this slightly cooler weather we had. Trolling crankbaits or downriggers 15-20 feet deep should produce some fish if you are unable to spot lock. Channel catfish are good in 4-10 feet of water using stinkbait fishing baited holes around stickups/cattails. Fish crappie using a light road runner style jig flung under docks with ample shade as well as working bridge pilings. Many bass anglers are catching fish around hydrilla. Water clear and should offer excellent bowfishing opportunities.
Oak Creek – FAIR. Water lightly stained; 82 degrees; 3.88 feet low. Largemouth bass remain good at first light with topwater. Moving to structures like boulders, fallen timber, and flooded vegetation with Texas rigged worms, crankbait, and jigs. Crappie are good on live minnows suspended and jigs moving through and under structure. White bass are fair in deep parts of the lake. Catfish are fair on nightcrawlers, live bait, and cut bait.
Possum Kingdom – FAIR. Water slightly stained; 83 degrees; 0.23 feet high. Fish have been biting in water depths 15-35 feet. Striper fishing is good and remains consistent with top water action working the south end of the lake using live bait, and topwaters when the fish are schooling top water. Catfish have been good on cut bait.
White River – SLOW. Water stained; 79 degrees; 19.17 feet low. Summer fishing patterns remains consistent to weeks past.
