Lake Bill Waller

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 2:19 PM

Bream fishing is excellent as the water warms and the fish head to the shallows to continue spawning.  They can be caught with crickets or worms in shallow water or near structure. Anglers fishing for bass should try near lily pads and structure with soft plastics or jerkbaits, watermelon seed and junebug are colors of choice.  Crappie are still being caught near the piers. Spinning jigs and minnows seems to be the best bet. Catfish are being caught with hot dogs and liver fished on the bottom. 

Water Temp: 78°F

Visibility: 36 in.

 Note: bass length limit regulations which are in place at Lake Bill Waller: the bag limit is 15 bass/day the slot limit is 18 - 22 in. (none can be in possession) with one fish allowed over 22 in.
