Lake Conroe Fishing Report
Black Bass: Even though we have had some cold weather this winter, a good number of bass are finding their way to the backs of protected creeks and coves where they will be spawning in the upcoming weeks. Boat docks, lay downs and grass beds in these areas are likely key targets to fish. Spinner baits, plastic worms and crank baits are all good lures to use in this cover.
Crappie: Crappie at this time of year can be caught both shallow and deep. Deeper structures are bridge pilings, brush piles and boat docks. The shallow cover can be in the backs of protective coves around stumps, lay downs and the edges of boat dock pilings. Also, the Stubblefield Bridge on the far north end of the lake is holding good slabs of crappie as well. Minnows and jigs are both good bait choices.
White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass: At this time these fish usually hold along the edges of drop-offs and submerged humps and points in the main lake area. Slab spoons bounced along the bottom or trolling small pet spoons in these areas are great methods in locating and catching these strong fighting fish and they are good eating as well.
Catfish: With the water temperature being cold, these fish will be in deep water depths. Dip baits fished along the edges of the river and creek channels or under the 1097 Bridge are good areas to fish. Baiting up areas with range cubes will increase your action.
