Lake Livingston is in great shape with normal water levels and good fishing for all species. Spring patterns should continue through the month of April. Crappie fishing is heating up and should remaing good in comming weeks. White Bass run is slowing down in the creeks as migrating Whites move into the main lake. Catfishing is excellent in the river. Blue cats are starting to show up on the bulk heads. Lake Livingston consist of over 90.000 acres of water and 450 miles of shore line..


Black Bass {largemouth} – Fish up to five lbs. recently on medium diving crank baits worked off main lake rocky points and rip rap. Fish "Charlie's Flippin Bug" around mid and lower lake boat houses. Fish June Bug creature baits and Lizards around shallow brush and rocks on the north end.

Catfish – Fish fresh cut shad drifted on jug lines across the flats in Carolina and Bethy creeks. Good numbers of Blue cats taking a variety of baits fished on rod and reel in the river channel noth of Riverside. Look for shad and cats on the bulk heads.

Crappie – Good Crappie being caught in the Riverside area in the major creeks . Bethy , White Rock and Harmon are all producing fish. Fish the log jams and lay downs with live minnows and jigs. Best jig has been black and chartruese tube jig rigged on a 1/16 oz. jig head.

White Bass – White Rock Creek, Nelson and Harmon creeks have been slow. The river Channel is still off color however could produce some good catches of Whites in the next few weeks as it settles out considering no more run off. look for Whites to start showing up on mid lake humps 11' to 15'.
