Lake Medina, with a variety of coves, rocky outcrops, and tributary creek beds, is a hidden oasis for anglers seeking largemouth bass, white bass, hybrid striped bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, and flathead catfish. Largemouth bass are a favorite of most anglers. Try fishing deep drop-offs near points in the warm months using jigs or shad imitating lures. The hybrid striped bass population is quite good in the reservoir around the open water points, as well as in the deep water near the dam and bite on troll spoons and chicken livers. Good quality white bass are present in small numbers off open water points and using small spoon or shad imitating jigs often prove productive. Watch for schools breaking the surface and cast top-water lures past the school dragging the lure through with a fast retrieve. Smallmouth bass can be caught in and around the rocky outcrops using crawfish-colored crankbaits and jigs. There is an abundance of good size channel and blue catfish in the two-to-five-pound range with a few much bigger. For bait, try using chicken liver, blood bait, or shad in the deeper coves that have feeder creeks.
