Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report February 20, 2001

Lake Level: 171.6 ft, (172 ft high pool) slowly falling Clarity: Muddy to stained on the North End clearing further south Temp: upper 50s to lower 60s Black bass moving into shallow flats and flooded buck brush in 2 to 4 ft of water. Spinner baits, tubes, brush-hogs and jigs working best. A lot of numbers and large bass being caught. If you know you are in an area that is holding bass and the bite turns off, try throwing a watermelon fluke and dead sticking it. Also if you are only catching small bucks back out to deeper water and work the points leading to the shallow flats. A lot of females are staging in deeper water. Good reports of White Bass coming in off the river above the Logansport bridge. Concentrate in the flooded sloughs with 1/4 to 1/2 oz. Chrome/ blue back traps, and chartreuse or white road runners working best. Crappie have slowed from last week. Some still being caught but they are suspended in 12 to 14 foot in 20 to 24 ft of water. Concentrate at the mouth of the sloughs dumping into the river channel. Chartreuse jigs tipped with shiners working best.

Water Temp: 60s
