GOOD. Water lightly stained; 80 degrees; 3.67 feet low. Lake Tawakoni continues to fish well as the summer pattern comes to an end. Each week the fish become more active as the water temperatures decline. Hybrid stripers and white bass have become active on the lake in several different areas, sometimes feeding under birds and other times feeding deep where we are catching them throwing spoons and slabs. Best depth has been between 12-24 feet. Crappie are picking up as the water temperatures continue to cool off. Standing timber has been best and active fish have been suspended 12-16 feet down over trees in 25-30 feet of water with jigs out performing minnows. The channel catfish bite is still wide open. Prepared bait such as dough and punch baits are working great over baited areas. seems like the best depth has been 25 feet of water. The blue catfish bite is also picking up. We are starting to see fish over 20 pounds caught drifting large pieces of cut Shad. For those wanting to fill the box, drifting small pieces of cut bait over large mud flats in 18-25 feet of water has been working well. The largemouth bite is also starting to pick up. Topwater bait at daylight has been working well, then switching to a baby brush hog after the sun rises. Focus on shallow boat docks and shallow rocks.
