The lake is 162.90 msl, high pool is 172 msl, over nine feet low. Water temp is running in the low 70s. The north end of the lake is stained from high winds and clearing as you go south. Extreme caution should be used running the lake even in marked boat lanes due to the low water conditions. For available ramps you can contact the Sabine River Authority. We are still able to launch at Huxley Bay but itâ€™s one ramp, one boat at a time. This weeks warming has increased the water temperature and slowed the bite down compared to the last couple weeks but fishing remains good to excellent across the board. Itâ€™s just taking a little longer to bag the fish. Black bass have been coming off C.R. or Texas rigged soft plastics in watermelon flavors and black/blue jigs. Mid to deep diving crank baits are also producing fish. The top water bite and schooling activity has been increasing. The river and creek channel ledges and drops have been the most productive areas. The Crappie have been effected the most by the warming water and have really slowed way down compared to the last couple weeks. Some good sacks are coming in but the reports indicate you have to cover a lot of brush tops, pick up a couple fish and move on. Shiners working best. The Whites are holding on the river channel sand bars in 14 to 20ft of water. Â½ to Â¾ silver slab spoons and tail spinners working best.
