Fishing Report: Alamo Lake
Alamo Lake fishing report
Lake level: 1,119 feet
Mark Knapp from Alamo Lake State Park had the following report:
Both ramps are in operation. No updates on the CORE draining the lake. Bass fishing is fair and the bite is best during mornings and evenings. Best baits have been creature baits (lizards, brush hogs) in green with red flakes. Anglers have been catching fish from 1/2 to 6 pounds. The top-water bite has been hit and miss but with air temperatures hitting 114 on Thursday, expect that to change soon.
“If people want a lake all to themselves, come out,” Knapp said. “We’ve only been getting 2-3 people a week.”
Nighttime crappie fishing is starting to heat up by the dam. Anglers can head to the cliffs area with crappie lights and try fishing a split shot rig with minnows. Anchor off the north side of the cliffs area, drop a submersible light off the back of the boat and start fishing 10 feet deep, working downward until bites come. Start fishing any time during the evening.
Catfish action has been good; sunfishing has been hit and miss; shorefishing is decent.
