It's almost summer and the fishing is GOOD at Lake McMurtry! Elevation is right at normal, the water temps are around 63 degrees and murky from the rain we've been getting recently. Crappie are fair on minnows and jigs at 10 - 12 feet around the fishing docks and brush structures. Saugeye have been catching really well on crankbait, sassy shad, and minnows at 5 - 10 ft around the sandbar, near the docks, and shorelines. Channel catfish have been good on worms, dough bait, and chicken liver at 5 - 15 ft along brush structures, docks, and the sandbar.
Be sure to send us your fishing photos so we can post them on our Facebook and "Fishing Friends" walls in the bait shops! Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to our Facebook at Lake McMurtry Friends!
