August 2022 Conroe Fishing Report
Black Bass: Bass action during late summer can be a little challenging. The pattern can change from shallow to deep in a matter of an hour or so. Your best bet is to fish shallow running crank baits or plastic worms along any type of rocks or boat docks the first hour or so. Once the sun comes up a bit try dragging Carolina worm rigs around main lake points, or road beds and submerged pond dams in 8’-15’ depths.
Crappie: Crappie action may be a little bit slow during this time of year, but if you are patient by fishing minnows or small jigs around bridge pilings, brush piles or tree stumps you can manage a decent catch at times.
White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass: During this time of year I like to troll small pet spoons behind deep diving baits near main lake humps and points in 15’-25’ depths. I try moving from one location to another looking for these fish, I also will use slab spoons, especially if they are close to the bottom.
Catfish: Catfish action is always good throughout the summer months. Just bait up an area either under the 1097 Bridge or along river and creek channels with either milo or range cubes and use dip baits, shrimp or chicken livers and the action will come. Depths can be anywhere from 15’-25’ depending on the time of day. Morning hours are best during this time of year.
