Lake Jackson Fishing Report July 2006

Jackson: Level: Down 1.5 feet. Temp: 84-88 degrees. Clarity: Fairly clear in the rivers and clear down the lake.

Bass: Good. Aaron Batson said the fish have moved out into 15 to 22 feet of water on deep humps and ledges. The closer to the brushpiles and river ledges, the better. Throw Texas-rig worms with 1/2- to 3/4-oz. weights. Straight-tailed worms like Trick Worms work good. Good colors are green pumpkin, cotton candy, and watermelon seed. Also try Norman’s DD22 crankbaits along the ledges. Try 1/2- to 3/4- oz. jigs in natural colors such as pumpkinseed with a trailer. “The night fishing is decent. Day or night isn’t going to be any better than the other right now,” said Aaron. Go up the Yellow and South rivers at night toward the Hwy 36 bridge. If you can find some mayflies near the water, a Pop-R is good. Also try a small spinnerbait in the blowdowns.
