FISHING FORECAST: The Lake is on the rise again with all the water coming into the lake as a result from all the recent rains to the north. Moving water in the river will continue to roll into the lake providing an excellent bite for Blue Cats. Lake Livingston consists of over 90,000 acres of water and 450 miles of shoreline.


Black Bass {largemouth} – Look for clear pockets of water in the upper lake creeks. Fished up to five lbs. recently on “Charlie & Gecko”, fished around boathouses and wood. Fish June Bug creature baits around brush and rocks in Kickapoo and White Rock Creeks.

Catfish – Fish fresh cut shad drifted on jug lines across the flats in Carolina, Bethy and Kickapoo Creeks. Big Blue cats taking fresh cut shad on rod and reel in the river channel.
Good numbers of Blues caught in Harmon Creek under the bird roost using fresh shad fished about 3′ under a popping cork.

Crappie – Some Crappie being caught in the major creeks. Bethy, White Rock and Harmon are all producing fish. Best bite is in areas of clear water and during warming trends. Fish the log jams and lay downs with live minnows and jigs. Best jig has been black and chartreuse tube jig rigged on a 1/16 oz. jig head.

White Bass – White Rock Creek, Nelson and Harmon Creeks have been slow. The river channel is still off color however could produce some good catches of Whites in the next few weeks as it settles out considering no more run off. Look for Whites to start showing up in mid lake area on the humps.
