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):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 84 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

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 pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Somerville Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.

Somerville Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Unlike most North American fish species, blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish are comfortable when the water temperature is this high. They will be feeding and moving in typical patterns. You will start having a little better luck if you can get to some moving water that is adding a little more oxygen for the baitfish and the catfish will be there also.

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 a new 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.
