Lake Conroe Fishing Report – May 2024

Black Bass:  Now that the spawn is over, the shallow water bite can be very good due to the shad and other baitfish in the shallows during the early morning hours.  Texas rigged worms and spinner baits work well during this time of day, but once the sun comes up, I like to use a Carolina worm rig and fish deeper structures such as submerged road beds, pond dams and points in 8’-12’ of water.  There are some areas around the lake that have grass and some top water baits work well to catch good numbers of bass.

Crappie:  This is a great time of year to fish for crappie using jigs or minnows and fishing bridge pilings or brush piles in 12’-20’ depths.  Try moving from one location to another after the bite slows down from each spot.

White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass: This is probably the best month of the year for the most active bite for white bass and hybrids.  I start out by trolling pet spoons over humps and main lake points to catch and locate the best action.  If they are along the bottom, I will try bouncing slab spoons near that depth to catch these fish.

Catfish:  This is another great time of year for catching good numbers of nice sized catfish.  Baiting up areas you plan to fish will increase the action.  Areas such as river and creek channels or under the 1097 Bridge are prime fishing areas in the early morning hours.  Dip baits and shrimp are both good baits at this time of year.
