July 18th Main Lake Water Temp. 78 Degrees
The Lake elevation is 3781.54 and the storage is 167,500 acre feet. The Main Lake is clear.
Walleye-They are pretty slow. Jigging with Nightcrawlers is the best bet. They are mostly suspended at various depths.
Bass-The better Smallmouth seem to be moving deeper. Texas rigged Finesse Worms, Drop Shot, or Jigs and Tailz have been working on these deeper fish. There is a fair top water bite early in the day. Largemouth are relating more to cover, especially brush with some rock near by.
Hereford Bass Club will be hosting a 1 day open tournament this Sunday, July 23rd. You can enter before safe light Sunday morning at the Marina parking lot.
Sun Country will be in town for a 1 day tournament Saturday, July 22nd.
Also, the Smith RV and Marine Tournament is coming up on August 5th, start making your plans!
White Bass-There is some surface schooling activity from Horseshoe Bend to the Ranch House. Watch for the blow ups and get them quick as they aren't staying up for very long. They are also beginning to gather up on the points in schools in 25 to 35 feet of water. Vertical jigging with Slabs or Blades is the way to go when you run across these guys.
Catfish-We had several good reports this week. Danny King's Punch was the best producer this week.
Until next week,
TIGHT LINES AND GOOD FISHING!
