Lakes: Canyon, LBJ and Dunlap Fishing Report

Canyon Lake:

Canyon Lake is still producing some largemouth and smallmouth bass but it takes patience and searching for the right spots.  Anglers experienced with the use of electronics certainly have an advantage.  Fish the drop-offs and ledges along main lake points.  Finding brush, boulders and green vegetation along these ledges will increase your odds.

Crappie fishing has been very slow.  Currently, the Guadalupe River is not flowing into Canyon Lake so the lake lever is dropping more quickly and is approximately 11 feet below normal pool.  I have recorded water temperature in the mid 90’s up the river this summer.

LBJ and Dunlap:

The bass fishing on Lake LBJ and Dunlap is okay early in the mornings and late evening.  The bite is generally over by 9:30 am and picks up again late evening and night.  So, fish early and late around main lake points with vegetation and shade.  Trees and docks produce shade so look at fishing dock and tree shade near deeper water during the day.  Surface lures, crank baits, soft plastics, spinner baits and swim baits are all working.  It depends on the fish’s mood, location and lure selection.  Experiment until you find what works.

Crappie fishing is slow in just about every lake in Texas.  Most every lake in Texas needs a significant amount of rainfall to raise water levels, lower water temperature, increase oxygen levels and replace the stagnating water with fresh moving water.
