Area fishing report

Lake Granbury, with the added water, has many pleasure boaters out as well as anglers. However, the lake is still around 4.5 feet low, and there are hazards out there. Don’t let your guard down. Water temperatures are around the low 80s. Most launches are open. Fishing for small stripers and sand bass continues to be good to excellent on most days on slabs. Black bass anglers continue to do well fishing rip rap and newly flooded areas. Channel catfish are reported as good on prepared baits near docks by the 377 bridge. Squaw Creek water level went over pool but has settled to normal full level. Water temperatures are really high on Squaw Creek due to the power plant, and because of that there is less traffic on the weekend. Anglers continue to report good catches of black bass near submerged structure on soft plastics and deep diving crankbaits. The invasive tilapia species continues to be caught in numbers on the main lake on worms.
