Fishing Tips for Canyon Lake

on February 2nd

Good bass fishing is being had right now by people who are fishing with Texas rigged watermelon Scoundrel worms on shaky jigheads. The best spots are those along drop offs in 15-20 feet of water. Trolling white/chartreuse Curbs striper jigs and jigging Pirk Minnows are good ways to catch striped bass right now. People jigging dark Blade Baits and Pirk Minnows in the main channel are reporting good action. Minnows fished upstream work for fair crappies. The water is clear, 56-6- degrees, and about 10’ low. Good luck fishing!
