Lake Palestine

Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 27)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 70 degrees; 0.75 feet low. The Fall bite is in full swing. Crappie are good on jigs and minnows relating to timber and brush in 12-30 feet of water. Bass are good with a topwater bite early, switching to jigs later in the day. Rely on heavy structures such as the boathouse, brush piles, bridges, and laydowns. Catfish are good on cut bait, chicken liver. You will catch bigger catfish on stinkbait.
