The lake temperature here at lake del Valle has been hovering at the 69-73 degree range the bass bite has been great for trolling fisherman you are going to want to troll in 30-40 feet water columns about 10-20 feet down. Panther martin spinners have been doing well but rooster tails or even putting your own skirt on the spinners has produced good results if you are looking to target the bass more frog lures and crawdad rubber baits have been working decently, the small and largemouth bass seem to be hiding in the heavy reed patches. The striped bass are still hitting on the top of the water although, unless you can imitate live or dying shad they will ignore your lure. Flukes, running a Kastmaster on the top, or you can even try jigging a Spoon right below the surface to imitate a dying shad these are all great ways to get a striper on the line. Bait wise the old reliable anchovies are working well, also the mackerel had been doing well for larger fish casting into the deep channel is a good bet, the stripers are usually patrolling the deeper water. Catfish have been biting as well, they are hiding in the weed mats near shore any sort of stink bait will work well although the anchovies, and sardines are their favorite still. The perch fish are only wanting tiny worms on trout hooks so if you can hook into a big one they are biting by the fallen and dead trees in the water they are easy catches for the kids! The trout are still in the deepest waters and are not really a good bet to fish for.
