Water temperature: 62
Cold weather has made for very little fishing on Jeff Davis, so there's not much new to report.
Bass fishing is good. The bass bite was good on spinnerbaits and crankbaits around the dam. A 5 1/2 lber was caught last week. Try watermelon or green pumpking colored soft plastics fished slowly. 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.

No reports on bream this week. They were being caught around the piers and dam with worms and crickets. Tight lining with redworms is a good way to catch redear sunfish.
No new reports on catfish this week, but it has been fair. Catfishing is usually good on the shallower flats and points. Try worms or liver fished on the bottom.
Crappie fishing is good. A few are still being caught in deeper water. Good numbers of crappie were being caught around the willow trees and piers in 12 to 16 feet of water. Try fishing with minnows or various colored jigs.
