December 9, 2006 Fishing Report for Lake Conroe, Montgomery County, Texas

The cooler weather has kept a lot of anglers off of the Lake; however the fishing has been great.

Black Bass are feeding in the new grass and cover next to the bank that has grown up while the lake was low and has now filled to pool. The water is clear and the fish move off pretty early to 8 to 11 feet of water. Texas rigged worms in plum, plum/blue, watermelon red and black have been good baits. The fish on the points are on the edge of the hydrilla beds. Shad colored crank bait have proven to be successful on the rocks and along bulkheads.

Hybrid/Striper Bass and White Bass have been great early and late. Most are along the flats, up on the edge of hydrilla beds where they have pushed the shad and off the main lake points that get deep fast. Rattletraps, Little George or almost anything that you can throw a long way to reach the schooling fish will work. Watch the birds...they will tell you where the fish are schooling.

Catfish fishing has also been great. Most catfish fishermen have their own ideas about the bait that they should use. We all use Magic Bait Company PREMO with Blood fished over range cubes and deer corn for chum.
