Bass fishing is fair, but there haven't been many fishermen on Lake Jeff Davis recently, and reports are difficult to come by.  Try soft plastics such as worms, flukes, etc. in medium depths around cover.  A new lake record was caught on March 21, see below.

JD 12.6 record bass 

The new lake record Largemouth Bass: 12.6 pounds!



Bream fishing is fair.  Crickets and worms are the best baits.


Above: the new Jeff Davis record crappie, 2.7 pounds.

Anglers have been fishing in 12 to 18 feet of water with minnows, with fair results. Mr. Jimmy Stapleton of Collins caught the new record crappie on August 18th.


Currently there are no reports on catfish. Try tightlining with worms or liver.
