June brings summer heat to Lake Livingston and that is what the White Bass like.  Bring on the HEAT.  White Bass will be surface schooling now all over the Lake.  Look for schools to show up around Pine Island, Dove Island, Goat Island, Palmetto Basin and more.  Schooling fish will bite just about anything while on top and the action can be fast and furious. One of my favorite rigs for schooling fish is a bone colored Pop R with a pet spoon tied on a leader off the back split ring. Throw this rig into the surface schooling fish and catch them two at a time.

Lake Livingston consists of over 90,000 acres of water and 450 miles of shoreline.


Black Bass {largemouth} – Fish black and blue lizards and June Bug Baby Brush hogs around the log jams now. Throw white spinner baits around shallow wood and rocky points.  Some good fish still being caught on Charlie’s Jigs fished around docks in Penwaugh and Kickapoo Creeks.

Catfish – Good fishing for big Blue Cats on drifted shad mid lake and lower lake regions.  Fishing for Blue Cats on jugs has been good in in the bays when the wind is blowing.  Trotlines and limb lines in the old river channel have been fair.

 Crappie – Fishing should improve in the creeks as they clear out. Look for Crappie in the deeper boat houses. Fish minnows and jigs on a slip cork in 4 to 8 ft. of water as water temperature rises.

White Bass – Mid and lower lake best for Whites now.  Key on Whites off structure and humps 15 to 18 ft. “slabbing” off the bottom now is the way to go while keeping an eye out for birds working over surface schooling fish. 

Good luck fishing and be safe on the water.
