Black bass fishing is good to excellent. Late in the evening is your best time of day. Start out in the mouths of the creeks and work your way back. Lake is at full level and slot of brush that grew while the lake was down is now under water. Log jams and trees that have fallen in or drifted in to the creeks are holding fish. Fish slow with a light Texas rigged greenpumkin lizard. Tail dipped in char truce dye. Or slow roll a double willow leaf gold spinnerbait. Char truce and white skirt with a char truce grub as a trailer. A stinger hook is a good bet for short strikers. Heavy line is recommended....Dan

Benbrook Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Mid February slow roll spinnerbaits in the mouth of all creeks. Be patient the bass are there. Late
in the day is the most active bite. Double willow leaf gold blades with a white and char truce skirt.
Add a char truce grub trailer with a stinger hook for short stickers. Large line is recommended. This
lake has ten pounders. Good luck.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Benbrook Lake at 50 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 50 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.
Benbrook Lake Crappie Rating:
Benbrook Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the Water Temperature at 50 all crappie should be up in their spawning areas now and spawn should be getting started. There will be a few few still in the deeps and prespawn areas, but a majority should be up getting ready or already spawning. Continue to hit the creek channels on the migration routes. Focus on isolated cover in a little shallower water. No need to get crazy shallow but start focusing on 15 feet or less of water. On warmer sunny days if the water is still at 50 you should attempt to bounce back and forth from 5-15 feet of water to attempt nailing a solid pattern fo r the day. Try a Kentucky rig baited with minnow, tube bait and small jigs.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
