Lake Kyle Fishing Report & Current Conditions

Fishing Nooks

Fishing Report

Warmer waters are keeping the fish moving all around the lake. Spawning season is winding down so bring your patience along with a plastic worm to catch the bass. Stinky bait like liver still attracts the catfish, while a worm under a bobber works well for the perch.

Stop by the office on your way out and let us know what you caught, where you caught them and what you were using. We will post the "secrets" right here so no one else will know.

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!

Current Lake Conditions

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.
