Alamo Lake

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, Jan 15 2020
This past Octobers survey showed a bass population that was evenly distributed. Large numbers of bass less than 13 inches in length are abundant, so the toughest part of catching the bigger bass in Alamo may be getting your bait away from the smaller bass. Water temperatures should increase from low 50s in early December to possibly the low 60s by the end of February, which means that slowing down any type of presentation is going to be key to good fishing on Alamo. Using top-water baits or other reaction-style baits fished quickly may not be the best strategy for the winter months on Alamo. Instead, fish crankbaits or spinnerbaits slowly, or fish deeper and slower with plastics such as drop shot rigs. Fishing in or around cover for bass is going to continue to be a winning strategy for bass on Alamo Lake.Black crappie fishing should continue to be good this winter, though it may not be as fast and furious as anglers experienced last spring and fall. Good reports of crappie in excess of 16 inches have been coming in recently, with the possibility of catching even larger fish. Trolling jigs tipped with minnows or small crankbaits in 10-25 feet of water, especially near cover, should produce during the morning and late in the day. For something different, try anchoring in deeper water during the night, deploying underwater lights, which attract bait and crappies, and then using jigs tipped with bait to catch crappies.Channel catfish fishing should be good throughout the winter. Just anchor near cover and use any of the prepared catfish baits as well as chicken livers or stink bait, or other baits like hot dogs or shrimp.Other fish such as bluegill, redear sunfish, tilapia and common carp are a lot of fun to catch. Many types of baits should work for these species.
