Fishing in Lake Livingston
Lake Livingston Dam
Upper End – Trinity River
Targeting Striped Bass on Lake Livingston will be exciting and successful when you use live shad and vertical jigging spoons.
Dam fishing is thrilling and a bit different to standard lake fishing, so you’ll need rods and reels suited for long casts and strong enough to hold the fish and the strong current.
The period from late January through March is reserved for the White Bass spawning run, and you’ll be most productive if you use light jigs with spinners.

Lake Livingston Fishing Seasons
Winter fishing for Striped Bass and White Bass is always a lot of fun on Lake Livingston. This means you can easily get your bag limit and have an amazing dinner.
This month is reserved for the American Bass Anglers tournament. You can find Catfish in Harmon Creek, and Crappie in the clearer waters. White Bass and Stripers are active as well.
Blue Catfish are the most common catch in March, and if you want to chase White Bass, going to the clearer waters in the upper end is your “bass-t” chance to catch something good.
If you’re looking to hook a Crappie or two, go to the shallows, to the tea-colored waters. Catfish are thriving in the lower end of the lake, and White Bass are hiding around Pine Island.
The weather is warmer, the rains have passed, and fishing in Lake Livingston is excellent. This means you can catch anything from Largemouth Bass to Crappie and Stripers.
White Bass, Catfish, and Crappie fishing is excellent, even though the heat is on. Largemouth Bass are not as present, but you can still find them in Harmon and Newton creeks.
If you want to have a good day on the water, you will have to have your line in the water as the sun is rising. Blue Catfish, White Bass, and Crappie are the most popular catch on the lake.
It’s not as hot anymore, but the wind can be a problem. Striped Bass is there for the taking, and you’ll find Catfish on the flats. White Bass is still present in the clear waters.
In October, you can hook Largemouth Bass that weighs up to five pounds, and Crappie are biting as long as you’ve got some fresh minnows around.
Late fall fishing on Lake Livingston is excellent, and Harmon Creek is one of the best spots on the lake to catch Striped Bass, Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Catfish, and White Bass.
Rains are frequent in December, but you can still reel in a good amount of Blue Catfish and White Bass. Crappie don’t like muddy waters, so it’s harder to target them this month.
