I have seen a post in here listed "LAVON FYI" but I haven't seen a lot of updates coming through that post. So I decided that it wouldn't be a bad idea to start a new thread that everyone can post their latest updates regarding Lavon Lake in. I'll also transfer over a previous comment I made on another post in order to start the "fun".


I look forward to seeing your reports, updates and pictures *if any*! I'll try to post some when I can!

THIS IS MY COMMENT FROM ANOTHER POST; REPORT FOR SUNDAY 06/24/2018 FISHING TRIP


Figured I would help with a more recent update.

**THIS UPDATE IS OUR MOST RECENT EXPERIENCE**
Other tactics show to be working as well, but I feel the info provided will be more helpful than just saying "throw whatever, there's fish in there somewhere!"

6-24-18 *Sunday

*LARGEMOUTH BLACK BASS*

Lavon is about a foot and a half low. The water is definitely warming up. I've been seeing average temperatures ranging between 82 to 86 degrees from main lake and in the coves. Stained water, working with approximately 2-3ft visibility. Greenish tint.

Early morning - good bites on fast top waters.
Later bites require a bit of patience, working Texas rigged plastics. Dark colors seem to be a favorite right now.

Most (if not all) boat ramps are open. Collin Park and East Fork *Main Lake and Marina* are definitely open -- as that's where we've been launching from.

FISHING REPORT: SUNDAY 07/01/2018

*SAND BASS*

We started out a short day of fishing, hitting the water at 0545 out of East Fork. Average water temperature was 82*, approx. 1.5' low. Water is still stained, becoming more of the well recognized brown tint. Light overcast with the Wind blowing about 15mph straight from the south, which made fishing our favorite spots a little more challenging than we like.

We did find multiple, massive schools of small sandy's and bar fish at the west end of the dam. It made the morning go by really quick and had my young nephew smiling from ear to ear. When the bite died off, it really died off. We gave up on the spot and moved to fishing for Largemouth's but couldn't get on them. Seems everyone had a difficult day from what I've seen and heard from other fisherman. We ran the Northwest end of the East fork with not a single bite!

We're hoping to have more Largemouth activity this Sunday.


Sand bass and bar fish were extremely productive on slab spoons *CC's* and were alternating between schooling on the top and being suspended, working around ~15ft. Shallower production only lasted for about 5-10mins before they went deep.

Finally got to sneak out to the lake yesterday evening.

Tuesday evening fishin trip!
*6:15pm-9:00pm*

Launched from the power plant at about 6:15PM - There was a small breeze, just enough to make it a nice trip on the water. Water temperature was reading a solid 89* no matter where we went-- the water is definitely clearing up- visibility around 3ft. Unfortunately we weren't able to get the Largemouth bass to bite but we did find a small school of sand bass on the south west side of the railroad bridge.. nothing extravagant but it gave us a little entertainment for a while.

After the sandy's died down, we moved to our wooded 'honey-hole' and tried to run some jigs/craws around the timber -- still no luck! Although my wife did manage to pull up a rather nice white crappie on a CC Spoon, believe it or not!

We did talk to a few other anglers and it seemed that everyone was struggling to produce many catches, so at least we weren't the only ones!





I'm still wanting to know how all these guys keep pulling up 7, 8 and 9 pound black bass out of a lake that I've fished my entire life! The best largemouth I've landed from Lavon was just shy of 6lbs. I know that's nothing to sneeze at, especially considering my personal best on any lake is only a mere 7lb 66oz from the famous Lake Fork, but it still frustrates me since I've never turned any real jaw-dropping numbers from my HOME LAKE... I have to be doing something wrong. bang

Fished Lake Lavon tonight 5-9 caught several crappie to 13 inches, sand bass and catfish 2-3lb range on minnows.
Guessing 15-18 feet of water bite was about 1 - 3 feet off the bottom.

Catfish had a really light bite, just noticed the line starting to move to the side.

I started out from East Fork about 6:20am today, wind was light from the NE.
Went to glass house, did not see anything moved around and stopped at Little Ridge point, there were a few small schools popping shad so I turned on my BOBO Thumper, Wow, it was on. I was catching 1 or 2 magnums at a time for the next 30 minutes in 22ft water, at times I couldn't get below 5' without something getting hooked.
I caught 42 total only kept 10 decided I had enough so left them biting and started looking for crappie.
Every bush in 14-18 ft. had some crappie, I would catch about 6 at each stop but only 1 or 2 would be 11 inches or larger, many were around 10" but I do not keep those, kept 11. The best bite was on 1/8 oz. white horse head jig heads with a spinner and black and chartreuse tube jigs 1.5".
On the way back around 11am I stopped at Little Ridge point, I could see fish on bottom in 22', I turned on the Thumper they came up and it was on again, most were small sandies or yellow bass, final count for the day 117 caught with most being released.

Fished Lake Lavon last night using a white road runner maribou jig ~1/8 oz in 14 feet of water about 1-2 foot off the bottom.
Caught a couple of crappie 10-12 inches and several channel cats 2-4 lbs.
Also used a lake fork baby shad in silver on 1/8 oz jig head. Crappie liked this better, fewer cats.
Also had a pole out with shad on it and caught a couple of the larger catfish on it though not as many as with the road runner.

Back at lavon today.
Many boats at the ramp today which usually has few folks.
Dam crowded with boats.
We caught some white bass trolling.
Since wanted to get on the water, did not wait for VP to open so could get minnows.
Caught several shad quickly at the boat ramp.
Tried jigs and shad catching just a few crappies, no keepers
Caught a couple catfish on jugline with shad ~16 inches
Lots of fish on fish finder, just could not figure out how to hook into them today.

Fished out of Avalon park south tonight.
Trolled sabiki rig with various color amribou rooster tails, large rooster at bottom and a storm shad tied off it.
Other poll had 2 hooks for catfish, one with shad, other with shad or shrimp.
Would stop when come over schools of fish and jig the sabiki rig. Also ensure catfish baits 1-2 foot off bottom.
No bites.

Found spot with lots of fish by dam. Same setup.
one light bite on sabiki rig.
Something took line out on my clicker but nothing there when I set the hook.

Left catfish baits out just raised them so top one about 1 foot under water since fishing along dam and "cove" between island(when water higher) and dam. One large comotion near the catfish baits, did not even pull line from clicker or come back for bait.
Threw chatter bait pretty close to rip rap along dam and in shallows and along shore.
No bites on the chatter bait.

Will be fishing around island off clear lake park on lavon on saturday late afternoon into night. I will be in read coosa hd if want to stop by.

Good point is water was flat, light wind, very pleasant out and no other boats on the water.
Would still be out there if didn't not have to get up and go into work tomorrow.
