The bass action is still good, with the fishing showing on topwater, plastics, nightcrawlers, reaction baits, and live shad, if you can dip them. Quite a few quality bass from three to five pounds reported over the past week. Not many crappie or redear reports with lighter fishing pressure due to warm weather. The trout action has been pretty fair for anglers targeting the rainbows trolling Needlefish near the dam or drifting with nightcrawlers in the same area. DFW trout plants went in last week and three weeks ago, and another is scheduled for next week. Bowfishing is allowed here for carp and the warm weather brought them up to the surface this week. Carp bowfisherman many only shoot from a boat after 8 a.m., and lake staff must approve bows. Moonlight fishing nights open to all anglers are July 8 and Aug. 5 this year. Night bass tournaments, the RTF Bass Tour, will be held June 17, July 15, July 29, Aug. 12, Aug. 26, and Sept. 16. Call Rich Tauber at 818-439-1154 on the night tournament schedule and entry information.
