Lake Jackson Fishing Report April 2017
Jackson: Level: 1 foot below full pool. Temp: Low 60s. Clarity: Clear to slightly stained.
Bass: Guide Keith Dawkins reports, “In last month’s report, I stated that the water temps going into March were high, and we should be ahead of schedule for the spring. However, a few cold snaps and some rain lowered the surface temps back down, and April should be a great month for catching prespawn and spawning fish. I have had success the last few weeks with crankbaits, like Bandits and Shad Raps, on points, as well as Robo worms on shaky heads. As the bass move back into spawning pockets and flats, use flukes in pearl or baby-bass colors, double willowleaf spinnerbaits and Texas-rigged 6-inch Zoom lizards around spawning areas. Bang-O-Lures worked slowly over spawning areas have historically produced some monsters on Jackson in April. For spots, concentrate on deeper flats and long points down the lake with flukes and Pointers.”
