Water Temperature: 64

Recent electroshocking showed a nice population of healthy bass at Jeff Davis.  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.  Jeff Davis has some large redear; mealworms fished on the bottom would be a good choice. Crickets and worms are the best baits for bluegill.


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

No recent reports on crappie, but anglers have been fishing in 12 to 18 feet of water with fair results. Minnows are the best bet.


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