Lake Jeff Davis - 8/18/2014

Water temperature:  88

Visibility: 36"

No major changes in the fishing at Jeff Davis this week; fishing traffic has been light.


No reports on bass fishing this week, but it had been pretty good.  Try fishing the willows about 15' deep.   Fishermen were having some success with whacky rigged soft plastics and topwater lures at dawn .  Harvest of small bass is encouraged at this lake.

Bass Limit: 16-20 inch slot limit; immediately release all bass between 16 and 20". Daily limit is 15 per day, only one of which can be over 20 inches.


Bream fishing is also good. A lot of bream are being caught all around the lake on crickets, jigs, and worms. Tight lining with redworms is a good way to catch redear sunfish.


No reports on catfish this week.  Catfishing is usually good on the shallower flats and points. Try worms or liver fished on the bottom.


Crappie fishing hasn't changed much; it is fair, with a lot of smaller crappie being caught around the willow trees.  Crappie can be caught near structure, or around the fishing piers.  Try fishing with minnows or various colored jigs.
