Joe Pool Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Go to the TPWD TX site for current fishing reports at Joe Pool Lake. Best bet is to ask fisherman hanging round at the Marina (Lynn Creek) for some feedback. Don't bother asking the Marina staff many on the night shift are very grouchy. Some longtime employees have lost their sense of courtesy when asked about fishing tips. The fisherman getting ready to go out are the best source.

Joe Pool Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
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.
