Fishing Report

Lake Bill Waller - 8/14/2017 12:10:00 PM

Bream can be caught with crickets or worms in shallow water or near structure. Two 10 lbs bass were caught recently by using large worms fished around deep structure.  Anglers fishing for bass should also try near lily pads and structure with soft plastics or jerkbaits, watermelon seed and junebug are colors of choice.  Crappie can be caught in deeper water near structure, minnows seem to be the best bait fished at 10 feet or deeper. Catfish are being caught with hot dogs and liver fished on the bottom near the earthen piers and fishing pier across from the maintenance building. 

Water Temp: 89°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.
