Find the grass, find the bass. Haven't been down there since March and heard they just dropped it another 15' to work on the damn but will say the fishing then was better then it had been in the last few years.

I was there 10 days ago and it was tough. Almost no cover in the water. Just a lot of rocks. I found a few small patches of grass in 1-2 feet of water. Most of the grass is on the bank. The last two feet that they let out was a killer for the fishing. If the water quits dropping the grass should start to catch up.

There is plenty of grass out to about 8-10'.

Fished for 3 days a couple weekends ago. According to waterdatafortexas the water level is the same now as it was then. We had about 6 boats in our party and everybody caught too many fish to count.

I know people get roasted for this, but this is a huge lake and I’ve never been there or anywhere like it before, so imma ask...
I’d appreciate some general areas that have these features or have been producing.. I have no information or ideas about this lake whatsoever..
My old efi like to drink gas so any info is appreciated. Also, I guess it’s best to launch at the state park?

Hi Chris, just to clarify no "State Park" its a "National Park" Basschamps will hold individual tournaments on Sat 6/20 and Sun 6/21, so you will have the lake to yourself during the week. Good Luck!
