Fishing in Lake Gaston is getting better, as water temperatures range from 60-65 in the coves and the low to mid 50s in the main lake. With the elevated temperatures this week, the water temperatures have increased and turned the fish on. All species of resident and anadromous fish are actively getting ready to spawn.

Largemouth bass are biting well in Lake Gaston. Look for the warmest water and throw rattling lipless crankbaits or Zoom Flukes around boat docks, around
cover on points and in the shallow coves. Retrieve the lures at medium or fast speeds and you should catch fish.
