Fishing has slowed a bit on the lake with the hot temps. Striped Bass and catfish are biting well below Denison dam. Striped bass are hitting artificial and live/cut bait during early mornings and late evening. ( striped bass limit is five in red river ). Catfish are hitting cut bait in slack water. Fishing on the lake for striped bass anglers should use top waters when surfacing feeding is present. Live bait is producing fish as well. On the lake anglers should focus their efforts to the south end of the lake and scan for schools in deep water.
