Cedar Creek Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Bass fishing tournament set for Cedar Creek Lake

by




Gun Barrel City will host a bass fishing tournament March 3-4 at Tom Finley Park.

Texas Tournament Zone will pay out $20,000 for the first place prize. Gun Barrel City will pay $5,000 from the city’s Hotel Motel Tax fund for promoting and sponsoring the event, and the prize money will come from anger entries.

TTZ officials say the tournaments host about 400 anglers per event, and that they hope the addition of the North Texas Trail that includes Cedar Creek Lake will grow the event larger.

Promotion of the event will include banners, radio advertisement, email campaigns and social media.

The event is expected to bring new lodging and food and beverage business to Gun Barrel City during the two-day event.

The 2017 schedule for TTZ tournaments includes lakes LBJ, Travis, Buchanan, Belton, Whitney, Cedar Creek, Texoma and Ray Roberts.

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Aug. 5)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 86 degrees; 0.67 low. Largemouth bass are good working topwater plugs and poppers very early on lake points, grass lines, and brushy cover, then shaky heads, TX rigged plastic worms, and diving cranks later in the day along deeper creek banks, drop-offs, and timber in 14-28’. Hybrids and sand bass are being caught off main lake points and humps with slabs, heavy spoons, and swimbaits. 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’. Live bait and cut bait are working well.
