Lake Travis Fishing Report - October 2016

1,027 Readers

Water Level: 680.34

Water Temp:
79 degrees

This week’s cold front dropped surface temperatures to 79 degrees and significantly improved the bass fishing.  On October 22nd, I had the honor of fishing with marine veteran Allen Leatherwood from Georgetown and the bass didn’t disappoint.  While the big bite eluded us, we enjoyed an all morning top water bite and landed over 30 bass over the 5 hours that we were on the water.  Spooks and chug bugs were getting crushed by hungry bass that were cruising the shorelines looking for an easy meal.  Crankbaits produced for us after the sun got high and the fog lifted.  While square bills produced consistently a few days prior, a medium diver proved to be the better producer this day.  Have several rigged up and switch it up to see what they prefer.

While we caught bass pretty much everywhere we went, secondary points ½ to ¾’s of the way back into coves/creeks seemed to hold the better fish.  We also caught fish in/around flooded brush all the way in the backs of coves/creeks and saw several small schools of 4+ lb. bass roaming the shoreline.

With nights getting longer and water temperatures falling, bass are going to continue to move shallow and feed up heavily for the upcoming winter.  Moving baits such as crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and top waters will produce high quantity catches but they will also eat jigs and Texas rigged craws.
