Lake levels are beginning to stabilize which is good news for anglers. Fish are becoming more predictable and normal in their patterns. Striped Bass are in early stages of staging at the mouths of Red and Washita river. Striped bass are between deadsticking flukes and live bait, anglers should have both on their boat if they want to effectively harvest Striper. Crappie are still holding close to bottom in 25ft-35ft of water, slow or no moment of jig will be the best method. Small and Largemouth bass are in shallow water and are hitting slow moving crankbaits. Bluecats are being caught in 10ft-20ft of water near river mouths by drifting whole or cut shad.
