Lake Jeff Davis - 9/22/2014

Water temperature:  80

Visibility: 36"

The water temperature is starting to cool off and fish are becoming more active; boat traffic has been very light.


No new reports on bass this week. Bass fishing has been fair.  Bass are suspending in tree tops over deep water near the creek channels.  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 fair.  Crickets, jigs, and worms have been successful.  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 has picked up.  Good numbers of crappie are 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.
