FISHING FORECAST:  I often get asked, ” What is the best month of the year to fish Lake Livingston?” October on Lake Livingston is one of the best months of the year to be on the water. Lots happening here now with great fishing.  One of my favorite ways to fish now is for Blue Cats in Harmon Creek.  Fish a popping cork about 3’ to 4’ down baited with fresh shad. Throw around the dead standing timber and get ready for a monster Blue Cat.

Good luck fishing and be safe on the water!



Black Bass {largemouth}  – Fish the Boathouses in Newton and Thomas Lake with six-inch red shad ribbon tail worms and black neon craw Texas rigged. Fish the rocks in Bethy Creek with lipped crank baits in sexy shad and splatter back. 

Catfish – Good jug line fishing the bays, Harmon Creek and Bethy Creeks can be good now with fresh cut shad. Best days are with a south or south west wind moving the jugs.  Also, fish the popping cork early morning in Harmon Creek.

 Crappie – Fish the lay downs in White Rock, Bethy, Harmon Creeks and Big Caney Creeks. Key on deeper holes and fish the end of the lay down about 5’ with minnows and jigs. Also, now is a good time to Crappie fish the boathouses in Newton and Thomas Lake.

White Bass – Don’t count out Whites stacking up in the creeks for the fall run.  Also, the humps lower and mid lake 11’ to 15’ with slab baits.  Look for birds and follow schooling action.
