Lake Palestine Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 16)

GOOD. Water clear; 85 degrees; 0.35 high. Largemouth bass are good working Texas-rigged worms in plum or blue, shad like swim baits and deep running crankbaits near boat docks and rip rac. Crappie are fair on minnows or jigs tipped with minnows around bridges and timber in 15-25’. Hybrid stripers are fair on live bait in 25-35’. White bass are good on slabs and swim jigging spoons. Look for birds diving over feeding schools. Catfish are good on punch baits and live minnows.
