I have served as a licensed professional fishing guide since March 1,1976. As your fishing guide I promise to help you in every way I can to make sure you not only catch fish but to show you a good time while on the water.

Lake Palestine Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 29)

GOOD. Water clear; 86 degrees; 0.02 high. Largemouth bass are good working blue fleck, or black fleck TEXAS rigged worms, swimbaits, and deep running crankbaits. Crappie are good on minnows around bridges and timber in 15-25’. Hybrid stripers are good on live bait. White bass are excellent on small swimbaits and slabs. Look for birds diving over feeding schools. Catfish are good on cut shad and prepared baits.
