Fishing ReportLake Lowndes - 8/20/2019 11:02:36 AM
Water temperature: 86
Bass fishing has been very slow. Try fishing grass flats with spinner baits. Topwaters, lipless crankbaits, and flukes are catching a few bass that are chasing shad.
The bream bite has been slow. Try tight lining meal worms and red worms along drop-offs in 3 –8 ft. of water. Any woody cover in those areas should be holding a few fish.
Crappie fishing is fair, with several anglers reporting catching some nice-sized fish. The creek channels seem to be producing the most fish right now.
Catfishing has been fair. Try targeting the creek channel and around the deeper points with night crawlers, cut shad, and liver. Tight lining is a popular technique for catfish. The fishing pier at the ramp has been a popular spot at night.
Lengths to release:
Catfish: no length limit
