March 2024 Lake Conroe Fishing Report

Black Bass:  March is when Lake Conroe lunkers start prowling around looking for a suitable place to dump their eggs.  Most of these fish can be found in the back of protected coves and creeks where the water will be the warmest during this period.  Many of these coves have different types of cover, such as boat docks, rocks and grass beds, which are good areas to concentrate on.  You can cover a lot of water by casting a rattletrap or spinner bait.  Once you locate some good bass beds, try casting Texas rigged worms and lizards to trigger a strike.

Crappie:  Crappie will be moving to the shallow protected areas as well and can be caught by fishing minnows beneath a bobber fished along the banks with some cover such as brush, stumps or boat dock pilings.  Depths can vary between 2’ – 12’ depending on water temperature and clarity.  Try moving from one area to another.

White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass:  These fish will bunch up together and can be located on main lake points and humps in depths between 15’ – 25’.  I like to troll pet spoons first in these areas to locate where they can be found.  Depending on what depth that these fish are in is how I plan to fish.  If they are on the bottom I will bounce slab spoons, but if they are suspended, it is best to troll pet spoons to catch these fish.

Catfish:  Catfishing at this time can be great by baiting up areas along river and creek channels or under the 1097 Bridge, by using baits such as chicken livers, shad or dip baits on sponge hooks.  Later in the month they can be caught in shallow water along bulkheads either on shad or shrimp.
