Cedar Creek Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Cedar Creek Lake

Cedar Creek Lake, the fourth largest lake in Texas with over 320 miles of shoreline, is located just one hour southeast of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. The short drive combined with the option for private boathouse ownership makes popular among visitors, "weekenders" and permanent residents alike.  More Lake Information

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 23)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 81 degrees; 0.06 low. Largemouth bass are good working topwater plugs and jerk baits very early on creek ledges and near boat docks. Shaky heads, black or purple plastic worms, and diving cranks fished in deeper water near boat docks, main lake drop-offs, and timber are productive later in the day. Hybrids and sand bass are being caught off main lake points and humps with slabs and live bait. Crappie are good with jigs and minnows in brush piles, deep water boat docks, and near submerged timber in 15-28’. Catfish are good in 12-25’.
