Thinking of going for the weekend to Coletto Creek. This will be my 1st time. Would anyone please share any tips for Bass Fishing.

Thanks in advance.

I have not been there for several years but its a nice lake. You need to pay attention and stay in the channel running wide open. From the ramp and heading upstream away from the power plant, there are trees on the right hand side that I usually would catch fish in. Also their associated coves. I also would catch fish in the cove where you launch your boat. Speaking of launching their ramp when I was going there was terrible and steep. If the lake is low, you can have an issue of having to back your boat in too far and your trailer tires go off the concrete ramp . So keep that in mind when launching if that is still the case. Prior to my 2018 truck I had a two wheel drive F150. It was difficult and somewhat a challenge to get my boat on the trailer. The last time I backed in just to the edge of the ramp and used my boat winch to get the boat back on the trailer. I have not been there in over 2 years so I do not know if the ramp is still an issue. If the lake is not really low, backing off the ramp won't be an issue. I would ask the people at the entrance. The lake does have some good fishing.

It's still 4.35 feet low. I don't know how that is even possible with all of the rain we have had this winter.


Be safe,

Last I was there in December it was very low. I fish from a Hobie kayak so it isn't an issue for me but I watched some boats trying to get back on the trailer...I enjoyed the show but didn't envy them. You're gonna have fun getting on and off the trailer.

As far as the fishing it was tough but I was fishing the day after a front. That said, in my opinion, Coleto used to be one of the best bass lakes in Texas before they killed the grass. Since then it is barely a shell of what it used to be. 20-40 2-4 lb fish per day used to be standard...I haven't had one 20 fish day since the grass was killed off. Back then you could go straight out around the islands, find the edge of the grass in deep water and catch fish after fish.
Now I would recommend the trees up lake as a possible starter spot. I don't know how good you are with electronics and finding fish offshore but I was hitting some on the ledges of the creek channels in the main lake area back in December.

Good luck!!. Depending on the weather you may see me out there on my yak. As bad as the fishing has gotten since they killed the grass, there are still some beasts in there and I did catch the 2nd largest bass out of the lake, a 12-3 after the grass was gone on February 15th years ago. She came on a square bill in 8-10 ft as a mild cold front was hitting.

Thank you all for your input i will reconsider and maybe just travel south to Falcon Lake. I have just been thinking of fishing other lakes as well.
