Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report February 19, 2002

The lake is at 169.74 ft. and falling, high pool is 172 ft. Water temperature is ranging from upper forties to lower fifties. North end of the lake is muddy to stained and clearing further south. The majority of fish still holding in deep water. Deep diving crank baits, spoons, jigs and soft plastics fished in 10 to 18 foot of water working best. Bite is slow. When water warms back up to the 50s look for the bass to move back into typical pre-spawn pattern working their way to the backs of the coves for the spawn. Spinner baits, jigs, shallow diving cranks and soft plastics (tubes, craws, brush-hogs, flukes and wacky-worms) should be productive. White Bass are making their annual migration up the river. Road Runners, lip-less crank baits in chrome and Rinky Dink tail spinners working best. Better reports coming in north of Logansport. River is falling keeping the Whites on the move. Some Crappie and Yellow bass (bar fish) being caught on shiners and jigs when fished in 15 to 25 ft of water over brush tops in the creek channels. Good reports of Catfish coming in on trot-lines. Live bream working best.

Water Temp: 50s
