Water Temperature:
Just got back from Yequa Creek looking for whites possibly spawning. Threw small spinners and crank baits for 3 hours and not a bite. Water possibly too high and swift currents due to recent run off from rains. Will try again in a week.

Hit the water at birch creek around 6:00am Water was smooth early on, got rough due to weather. It was slightly overcast and had a little rain around 10:00am. We used white crank baits behind the island on the opposite side of the lake. We hit 3 large crapie right off then fishing slowed. Caught 2 largemouth bass in the next 2 hours and called it a day.

Somerville Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- What are Large mouth biting on this weekend. 3/2-3/2012
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Somerville Lake at 48 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.
Somerville Lake Smallmouth Bass Rating:
2.5
Somerville Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The lake has never been stocked with smallmouth bass, because the water gets too hot in the summer. It does contain spot or native bass which grow smaller than the Florida strain largemouth.

My tip for smallmouth bass is find a lake that's been stocked with them.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 48 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.

Somerville Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Somerville Lake White Bass Rating:
3.5
Somerville Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- White Bass typically will start spawning (usually in any major rivers/streams they can head to, upstream
from the main body of water) when the water starts reaching the mid 50s to lower 60s (Early Feb-Apr in
this part of TX). If they can\'t make it upstream, they tend to spawn off windy lake points and similar
areas. White Bass are most active when the water temperatures is between 63 degrees and 76 degrees.
They often frequent sandbar humps in relativity shallow areas of lakes at these temps, eventually
ranging across much of the main lake following schools of shad except for the dawn and dusk hrs when
they move closer to shorelines. Above 80 degrees, the activity starts to decrease. In late fall when the
water temp dips below 50 the activity falls off.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
