Lake Buchanan: Water clear; 64 degrees; 1013.80' (7' low)
Bass are setting up on ambush spots inside of secondary points around cover on breaklines of flats. Most productive areas have been above Beaver Creek to Mud Island/Cedar Point. As water cools and more shad move out of channels expect to see the creeks produce, especially when we get some respectable rain and the creeks have a flow.

Largemouth are very good to 5+ lbs. under cloud cover in 2'- 4' along laydowns and fence rows in pockets from Beaver Creek to Mud Island/Cedar Point using a blue shad Terminator, 1/4 oz. Bleeding Shad Rat-L-Traps and pitching 6" Texas rigged green-pumpkin Scoundrel Worms and a Super Tube Heavy.

Stripers are fair below Shaw Island in 20'-40' drifting live bait, jigging Spoiler Shads and 1/2 oz. Pirk Minnows.

channel breaklines and points using 1/4 oz. Bleeding Shad Rat-L-Traps,
Golden Shiner Terminator spinnerbaits and Texas rigged 5" green-

Lake Buchanan: Water stained to clear; 52 degrees; 1013.36' (7.5' low)
Continual dry fronts with high, gusty winds are making it tough. The
larger creeks with bluff walls are easier to work and have been producing.

3/16 oz.Terminator finesse jig w/ pork strip trailers and 5" smoke JDC Craws.
Stripers are fair to good in 30' below Shaw Island drifting live bait,
casting Spoiler Shads and jigging Pirk Minnows.
White Bass are slow.

Canyon Lake; Water clear; 54 degrees; 906.85' (3' low)
Lack of rain and now current flow is causing the quality bass to get
harder to find because of decreased activity, but where you catch
one there will be more, so work that area thoroughly.

1/4 oz. black-blue Terminator rattlin' jigs, 5" watermelon
JDC Craws and Texas rigged watermelon Scoundrel worms.
Smallmouth are very good over rockpiles along ledges in 5'-15'
on pumpkin Devil's Tongues , smoke 4" JDC Drop Shot worms
