Once the weather begins to warm up the catfishing warms up as well. North Texas Catfish Guide Service will start focusing on structure fishing Lake Lewisville for blues and channels. The spring and summer will produce good numbers of blues and channels and some good sized fish as well. The rod and reel catfishing will get fast and furious in the spring and makes for some great spring catfishing and summer catfishing.
When the days get really hot in the dead of summer, we will focus on fishing early mornings and late evenings and nights on Lake Lewisville. The catfishing stays great throughout the summer and some great catfishing will still take place. Night fishing trips are also a great way to take in some catfish action in the summer and usually produce some really good numbers of catfish.
