LAKE ARROWHEAD STATE PARK, TX (TNN) - It’s spring time and we’ve got warmer temperatures in the forecast.
With the warmer temperatures, fishing is starting to heat up across Texoma.
Lake Arrowhead is a great example of one of the lakes where the bite is heating up.
It was great to see just how well the lake has recovered after the last few years, ever since the terrible drought that dried up a majority of the lake.
Over the next few weeks the Texas Parks & Wildlife encourages people to “Get their honey-do’s done and get ready to come out and catch some slabs,” Tom Lang, Texas Parks & Wildlife said.
We all caught some crappie today. We were using crappie jigs in about 10-15 feet of water. They are also doing good on live bait in the same water depth.
The water temperature varied across the lake from about 58 to 66 degrees.
The crappie deep in the colder waters but have moved up shallow in the warmer areas of the lake.
We caught a couple largemouth bass as well.
The bass have moved up shallow for the spawn, we caught them in water temperatures over 60 degrees on chatter-baits, Texas-rigged lizards and senko worms.
We caught them in water depths from 2 to 5 foot of water. Of course, employed a catch and release policy since they were full of eggs.
We had a great time out on the lake, a lot of fish were caught and we had an absolute ton of fun.
Tight lines y’all.
