TIPS & TACTICS

Lake Coleman is well known for hybrid striped bass fishing, especially during the summer and early fall when hybrids roam in large schools and feed on the surface. Fast moving lures and topwater baits work well. Downrigging and drift fishing with live shad or sunfish are also very effective for hybrids in this reservoir. Largemouth bass fishing is best from September through May. Lake Coleman is an excellent topwater lake for these bass. Spinnerbaits, crankbaits, plastic worm, jigs, and jerkbaits are also effective. Jerkbaits and floating worms are hard to beat from March through May, with a general shift from jerkbaits to floating worms as the water warms. Buzzbaits are most productive in the fall. Trotline anglers do very well for flathead catfish, especially in the upper end.


FISHING COVER / STRUCTURE

Lake Coleman has a rocky shoreline with numerous points and ledges. Standing timber is abundant in the upper half of the reservoir. Black willow trees, brush, and boat docks round out the primary cover and structure.


AQUATIC VEGETATION
