Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 8/10/2022 10:52:59 AM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass Very little has changed at Lake Lowndes; the bite for all species has been slow. The bass bite has slowed significantly, and there's not much to report. Your best bet is to fish early and late in the day, or fishing at night. Topwater and Texas- or Carolina-rigged soft plastics are popular choices.
Crappie Crappie fishing is all but non-existent currently. Try fishing the deeper brushtops and offshore cover. Trolling crankbaits and jigs is also a good technique.
Bream Bream fishing is slow. Crickets and worms are the best bets, but small spinners will also catch fish. Look for beds in the shallow pockets around the pavilion and along the eastern bank across from the fishing pier.
Catfish Target the creek channel and around the deeper points with night crawlers, cut shad, and/or liver. Tight lining is the most popular technique for catfish.

Water temperature: 85

Visibility: 36"
