Good crappie bite at Lake Hodges


The 115 anglers checked at Lake Hodges last week reported catching 48 bass to 7.17 pounds, 83 crappie and 1 channel catfish. The crappie bite is definitely the story, with plenty of good sized black crappie available.

  • The water temperature is reported at 62 degrees. The launch ramp conditions are listed as “good/fair” but boaters should use caution when launching. The lake’s water level is 23.22 feet below spill, less than 2 feet higher than the minimum required for the ramp to be operational. 

    Hodges is open on a Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday schedule for fishing. The concession is currently closed, so no boat rentals or bait are available.
