Lake Palestine Fishing Report from TPWD | April 24, 2024

April 2024 Fishing Report - Lake Palestine Texas

GOOD. Water slightly stained; 72 degrees; 1.10 feet above pool. More rain in the forecast for the weekend. Bass are good, with the fish beginning post-spawn spread out.

A good bait to try is shallow running squarebill crankbaits, smaller ones that go no more than 2-3 feet down. Water in creek areas may still be rain stained, so try the darker colors there, shad and light perch colors in the clearer places.

Hybrid stripers have also been good, often mixed with white bass, though little surface feeding has been observed. Crappie are fair, as they spread back out, fishing the open, deeper water has been hampered by wind and storms. Blue catfish remain good in 3-22 feet, often coming into the creek shallows for shad.
