Fall weather pattern is increasing the catch-rate during the day. Plan to stay longer and work your way around the lake's bank.
Reports continue to come in that channel catfish being caught in the pier area using shrimp and liver bait, and the live worms are catching plenty of catfish and perch. We are hearing from some that the fish are breaking their lines... must be a large fish!
If we had to give you a place and technique that works best right now, try this. Go weedless with a long plastic worm with bright tail at the end of a light weight slip shot. Cast with the wind behind you anywhere between the amphitheater and the pier. Cast out deep, use heavy wrist action on the worm to make it full of life, BUT retrieve slow. Our bass like to "slow dance" with bait, so reel slow, stay near the bottom and use twitching action.
Increase your catch-rate by purchasing a bag of fish feed from the office. It's the same feed that is in the feeder. Toss the feed in the area you plan to fish.
Effective September 1, 2014, Lake Kyle is a Catch & Release lake. TPWD regulations found at this link, click here.
BE A GOOD SPORT AND PRACTICE CPR WHEN YOU GET A FISH ON. CATCH, PHOTO, RELEASE!
Recent rains have filled the lake back to 100% full. Tall grass causes a snake concern, as they can hide in grass about 2" tall. Use extreme caution until the ground dries and the grass gets cut.
