CANEY LAKE –  The yellow bass have started to bite in 35-40 foot water with most caught on shad colored jigs such as the Bobby Garland Baby Shad and the Double Silver Rainbow with some crappie mixed in. Yellow bass are beating the crappie five to one; catch six fish and five will be yellow bass. A few bass up to 8 pounds have been caught in 10-12 foot water on the Shaky Head. 

CHENIERE LAKE – Crappie fishing is fair around the spillway and in Puckett Lake on jigs and shiners. Bass are slow.

LAKE CLAIBORNE – The report continues to be on the “bah-humbug” side on this lake. No crappie catches are being reported and only a few bass have been caught and they’re scattered from fairly shallow to deep water. The lake is muddy and still a bit high. The fish have also stopped biting in the creek below the spillway.

LAKE D’ARBONNE – The water level is near pool stage but is muddy. Crappie fishing is slow as is the bass fishing. Catfish are biting cold worms off the banks.

OUACHITA RIVER – The river is still around flood stage and access to most boat ramps is limited. Few anglers are going out and no reports have come in. 

LAKE POVERTY POINT – Crappie are fair around the boat slips at the marina late afternoons but better on the lower end of the lake in deeper water on jigs and shiners. A few bass to 7 pounds have been caught on Brush Hogs fished fairly deep. Channel catfish are biting cut bait fairly well.

LAKE ST. JOHN – Catfish are biting shiners and cold worms on yo-yos.  Crappie are fair on jigs or shiners. Bass fishing is fair on jigs.
