Fishing Report: Red River (pool 5)
The bass are in the back water. Since the river is on a major rise, the fish are going toward the clear water to spawn. Port Lake, Couples, McDade, and White House are the main areas to fish. Jigs, Lizards, and Brush hogs seem to be working very good around the log jams in 2-4ft. of water. You can still catch alot of pre-spawners in the deeper sloughs on spinnerbaits and carolina rigs. The closer we get to the next full moon, the better the fishing will be.
The perch are in the same areas as the black bass. Shiners are working best on the river.
