Fishing Report

Prentiss Walker Lake - 9/12/2018 8:56:08 AM


Bass fishing has been fair. Fish are being caught in 4 - 6 feet of water. Try fishing with topwater lures in the morning. During the evening time use crankbaits and spinnerbaits around structure. Anglers have been doing well lately in deep water with soft plastics lures. Prentiss Walker is bass crowded and the harvest of smaller fish is encouraged.


Bream fishing has been fair with anglers having some success using small worms and crickets. Try fishing in shallow areas around 3 - 6 feet of water. Some good redear have been caught right off the bottom. 


No recent reports. Try targeting crappie at 8 - 12 feet of water along creek channels and structure. Try fishing in these areas with different colored jigs or minnows. 

Fishing for catfish has been fair lately. Try fishing at about 8 - 12 feet of water early morning and at night. Chicken liver and blood baits will be the best choices for catching these fish.
