Lake Jackson Fishing Report – August 2023

GON Staff | July 26, 2023

Jackson: Level: 0.6 feet above 528. Temp: Upper 80s to low 90s. Clarity: Mostly clear with some river stain on weekends from boat traffic.

Bass: Tournament angler Willie McMullen reports, “Even if you can find one of the rare mayfly hatches, it will be hit or miss. Make a half-dozen casts to cover the water column with a Pop-R, medium-running crankbait in bream colors, then a Texas-rigged worm with some chartreuse in it to imitate bream.  If you don’t get bit quick, move on. There is an early morning, deep seawall bite for spots on topwater baits like a Gunfish or smaller Sammy. Hit deeper docks with a shaky head or jig when the sun is out. Your best bite will be early, from daylight to about 9 when boat traffic gets bad. A few bass are being caught at night around deep brush and blowdowns. Sometimes dock lights will pay off, but if you don’t get a bite quickly, go to the next one. There really are not enough lighted docks to make a decent night of fishing.”
