Prentiss Walker Lake - 4/16/2019 10:55:30 AM

Temperature: 65 F          Visibility: 30"


Bass fishing has been fair. Bass should be in shallow water around structure. Try using spinnerbaits and soft plastic lures in 3 - 6 feet of water. Prentiss Walker is crowded with bass and anglers are encouraged to keep small fish.


Bream fishing has been fair. Bream are in shallow water. Try fishing at depths of 3 - 6 feet using crickets or small worms in and around structure. Prentiss Walker have a good population of big bream. 


Crappie fishing has been fair. Some crappie will be in deep water along creek channels and deep structure. Other fish may be anywhere in the water column so try multiple depths until fish are located. Target these fish using jigs and minnows. Congratulations to Chris Hughes of Mize for catching the new Prentiss Walker lake record for crappie. The fish weighed 2.0 lbs. 


No recent reports. Catfish can be targeted in deep water around creek ledges and brush piles. Worms and liver are your best choices for baits.
