Lake Jackson Fishing Report – August 2008
Jackson: Level: Down 1 foot below full pool. Temp: 86-88 degrees. Clarity: Fairly clear with a 2 foot-visibility.
Bass: Early morning and late evening are best, and midday can be real tough, according to Aaron Batson. “Look on seawalls early in the day very near to deep water,” said Aaron. “Try a buzzbait or topwater lure in these areas for the first hour of each day. Late in the evenings it is best to run way up the South and Yellow rivers above the Hwy 36 bridges. Working a Texas-rigged lizard in darker colors around any wood cover will work. Rocky banks up the rivers will hold fish that can be caught on 1/4-oz. Net Boy Baits Flipp’n Jig. Midday and nights fish down the lake with Carolina-rigged Zoom worms and 3/4-oz. Net Boy Baits FootBall Jigs. Work deep, rocky points near the dam to catch the spots that live there. They will be holding in 20 to 25 feet of water. Don’t be afraid to try even deeper on hot days with heavy boat traffic.”
