Toledo Bend Fishing Report
Mid Lake and South End
JANUARY 15, 2006
Low lake level seems to be the topic on everyone's
mind. Even with our lake being low it's still one of
the largest reservoirs in the United States. The fish
didn't pack up and move, and there are boat ramps that
have been worked on so we have access to the lake. As
far as boat lanes, low water or not boaters should
never take markers for granted. If you are not
familiar with the area be cautious. So bring a map,
camera and a spiral notebook and take full advantage
of the low water because the rains will come and the
lake will rise!
