Anglers are finding good striper action in the Boulder Basin and out of Temple Bar. The fish are taking anchovies. Top-water action can be exciting when the striped bass are boiling. Zara Spooks, Jumpin’ Minnows and other similar top-water baits will catch stripers feeding near the surface. Improve success and avoid the mid-day heat by getting out early in the morning or in the evening. Black bass action has been steady and catfish are eating almost anything. Night crawlers, hot dogs, cut anchovies or commercial stink baits will catch the fish. As of Monday, the water level was 1,072.2 feet, more than 147 feet below full pool.
