Amistad Fishing Report
- Mar 22, 2023
- GOOD. Water stained; 65 degrees; 38.02feet below pool. The continuing cold fronts have dropped our water temps to low-mid 60s. This has also delayed our bass in the spawning cycle. Fish are still in the pre-spawn phase. Secondary points leading to flats and bays are holding fish. Texas rigged plastics worked slowly are catching them. Tight lines Captain Olin Jensen, Jensen’s Guide Service. Largemouth bass are good in 5-15 feet of water on plastic lizards, creature baits, senkos, flukes, beavers, Texas rigs, Ned rigs, or Carolina rigs. Stripers are fair using buck tail jigs and swim baits. White bass are good in 30-50 feet of water on main lake channels using shade colored blade baits, spoons, or rattletraps. Catfish are fair in 20-50 feet of water using nightcrawlers, chicken liver, or cheese bait. Tight lines. Report by Captain Raul Cordero, Far West Guide Service.
