With the influx of warm weather people are getting excited for a new fishing season at Lake McMurtry. Current water temperature at the East Dock is 53 degrees fahrenheit and reports of 55+ degrees in some of the shallower coves is starting to produce some action. Bass have been reported moving into shallower water and action is slowly picking up. Spinnerbaits, rooster tails, panther martins, and some various jigs and worms have all been good for Bass. We are still getting reports of Crappie being caught off the docks using small Crappie jigs or minnows. Several catfish have been caught in the last couple of weeks from near the docks and various locations. No reports of Saugeye. Stay tuned for a more detailed report in the next couple of weeks. Get ready, fishing is about to really heat up!!!!!!
