Fall fishing on lake Livingston is now some of the best fishing of the year. The lake is in great shape and all species of fish are biting. This pattern should continue through coming weeks until there is a major drop in water temperature. Conditions are good for a fall run of White Bass. Duck numbers are up and waterfowl hunting looks good.
