Wright Patman Fishing Report

Apr 17, 2024
GOOD. Water stained; 70 degrees; 3.97 feet above pool. Fish seem to be in the flood water. Catfish are being caught back in brush with the usual blood and cheese bait. Kelly Creek has been good for catfish. Crappie are on the bank spawning, and scarce in deeper water. Some crappie continue to spawn along the bank, but many fish have spawned out transitioning to deeper water near major creek mouths. Report by Jerry Gennings, local angler and guide.
