Lake Jackson Fishing Report – June 2020

GON Staff | June 1, 2020

Jackson: Level: Full pool. Temp: High 70s to low 80s. Clarity: Stained in the rivers and clear on the main lake.

Bass: Tournament angler Brian Lee reports, “The bite has been slowing down a bit for me, as I’ve been following the fish from the shallows to their deep hideouts. I’ve been running and gunning a prop bait and a Rico with some extremely vicious blow-ups, but the fish aren’t really eating the bait good. A fluke was killing the fish the last few weeks, and I still can catch the bass on it, just not the quality fish like I was. The shad spawn has been sporadic as the weather is playing a huge role in that. If you can find what’s left of a shad spawn, the fish will be there. The next big thing will be the mayfly hatch. I look for the bite to really pick back up then. Look for the topwater bite to be good through June. After the sun gets up, it gets tough. Honestly that’s when I’ve been loading up and calling it a day, but you can move out deep and crank a Strike King 6XD on offshore structure and cast a Dirty Jigs jig on deep brush and catch a few. Look for the bass to be more concentrated on deeper structure next month, and your electronics will be a huge deal in catching fish. Drop shots and C-rigs will be your primary baits, so knock the dust off of them and get ready for some tough outings. Don’t be surprised if you load the boat if you can find the bigger schools willing to play.”
