Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Dec. 4)

FAIR. Water lightly stained; 60–62 degrees, 2.30’ low. Largemouth bass continue to be fair on Carolina rigged creature baits, plastic worms, and buzz baits along the Caney Creek flats on the southeast end of the lake. Hybrid stripers are good with Rat–L–Traps matching the baitfish throughout the lake and moving with schools. Crappie are good on pink and white jigs around large docks and structures. Catfish are good on cut shad, dough bait, and stinkbait over corks. Trotlines are good with live bait, especially on the southeastern fingers. High winds have made some days difficult.
