Walter E. Long Fishing Report

Jul 17, 2024
GOOD. Water normal stain; 84 degrees. Bass are good on worms in the grass. There is very little schooling action. Stripers are good trolling, but very few keepers. Bream are good. Report by David Townsend, Austin Fishing Guide. Lake Decker is fishing well for bass. There is a bit of schooling action, but usually a bit later in the morning. To start, find some nice thick grass and throw Texas-rigged 4-5 inch straight worms to catch ya some. If you notice any action such as bait fish being chased or jumping. Get a rod with a swimbait on it and start chunking. There are hybrids in this lake, and those can be a blast to catch. Big largemouth bass can be mixed in, so be ready. Report by Bryan Cotter, Texas Hawgs. Crappie are good in 15-20 feet of water on chartreuse jigs. Report by Jess Rotherham, Texas Crappie Fishing Service.
