Went to clear fork off highway 377 this morning at 0730 Tuesday March 31,2015. Only sporadic carp top water. Did not catch any game fish. Water level too shallow for spawn, but fairly clear. Need a good rain to bring water level up.

Black bass fishing is good to excellent. Late in the evening is your best time of day. Start out in the mouths of the creeks and work your way back. Lake is at full level and slot of brush that grew while the lake was down is now under water. Log jams and trees that have fallen in or drifted in to the creeks are holding fish. Fish slow with a light Texas rigged greenpumkin lizard. Tail dipped in char truce dye. Or slow roll a double willow leaf gold spinnerbait. Char truce and white skirt with a char truce grub as a trailer. A stinger hook is a good bet for short strikers. Heavy line is recommended....Dan

- Mid February slow roll spinnerbaits in the mouth of all creeks. Be patient the bass are there. Late
in the day is the most active bite. Double willow leaf gold blades with a white and char truce skirt.
Add a char truce grub trailer with a stinger hook for short stickers. Large line is recommended. This
lake has ten pounders. Good luck.

Benbrook Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
