Fishing Report

Lake Monroe - 8/14/2017 10:29:46 AM

Much like the last few weeks, the most action on the lake continues to come from bass and bream anglers. Bream anglers are catching fish adjacent to the bedding areas close to drop-offs around the piers and in the coves. Popular areas have been the earthen pier behind the lake office, around the boat ramp, and the campground point next to the pier. Most anglers are tightlining crickets and redworms. For bass, anglers are throwing topwater frogs, walking baits, and buzzbaits around the grass and points early and late in the day. During the day, anglers are moving out deeper to mainlake points and other abrupt depth changes with shakeyheads, Texas/Carolina-rigs, and crankbaits. No catfish or crappie reports this week.


Anglers need to keep in mind the size and creel limits of the lake:

Bass: Limit of 10 per day, bass between 14 - 22 inches must be released immediately

Crappie: Limit of 20 per day with no length limit

Bream: Limit of 100 per day with no length limit

Catfish: Limit of 10 per day with no length limit
