Reservation Number : 30099
Property Name : Travis Lake
Reservation Date : 10/17/2021 PM -
Total Fish/Sizes : 31
Lures Used : Spinnerbait, Crankbait, Rattletrap, Plastic swim baits, Wacky rig senko

It was a new lake for us again. The gate GPS for our reservation was exactly on spot. We launched about 3:30 p.m. and and the water was almost calm. I didn't know the water temperature but the water clarity was at most 1'.  I wanted something loud and flashy so I began throwing crankbaits and spinnerbaits.  The girls were throwing plastic swimbaits of various colors.  For one hour I could not get them to take a fast moving bait but the girls were able to catch a few on the plastic swimbaits. The bass were from 10- 13". Then once I picked up the wacky rig senko, the light switch turned on. The fish caught were mainly in 1-4' of water. Most of the fish were caught on the dock side but the fence line on the opposite side yielded a few. You could also fish pretty much the middle of the pond because it was quite shallow. We didn't catch any monsters but it was a fun day. We didn't venture passed the fence line opposite the dam because I wanted deeper water access for the fish.  All in all we enjoyed the day at beautiful Travis lake.  Thank you PWF and pond owners!

Back in early spring I sat in front of that pump jack catching a bunch of 1-2 pounders. I did catch a 5 pounder on the dock side of that fence and lost a good fish at the end of that fence. Good job. Looked like a fun day!  I will be visiting that pond very soon.

Definitely caught quite a few bass along both fence lines but couldn't find the toad. Looking forward to spring time and fishing the whole pond.
