Toledo Bend sunrise at Mudfish Adventures

Toledo Bend

FAIR. Water stained; 52-56 degrees; 3.36 feet low. GOOD. The water level is 168.7 with one generator running. The water is stained in the main lake and is muddy in the feeder creeks. Water temperature in the main lake is running 52-56 degrees and further back up in the creeks is 52-53. Largemouth bass have been scattered due to varying weather patterns with cold rain. Bass are biting on big lizards on a Texas rig, Carolina rig, and/or spinner baits in shallow water. The crappie guys reported good numbers and size of fish on the breaks in the river channel on jigs. Monkey milk seems to be the winning color in plastics or live minnows in 22-28 feet of water. Winter has made it to East Texas finally with a 27-degree night time temperature. The chicken coop area should start getting active now. The white bass will be moving North to the headwaters very soon for their spawn. Kayakers are catching bass using a half ounce chrome blue back and an imitation bleeding shad rattletraps in 2-6 feet of water. No catfish bites were reported this week, but with the cooling weather and water rising the bite should turn on soon. January and February are good months on TBend for a fish of a lifetime. Good luck and tight lines! Report from Captain Steve (Scooby) Stubbe, Mudfish Adventures LLC, Mudfish Rod Shop, Kayak/Guide Service.
