Cedar Creek Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report for January 6, 2014


Hi folks, Jason Barber here with the http://www.kingscreekadventures.com/ fishing and lake report for Cedar creek Lake. The water level is on the rise!! We are at 3.53' low and we should be full by spring if the trend continues. The water temps are fluctuating in the 40's and the water clarity is stained to muddy going south to north. Crappie are pretty tough right now but if you are a die-hard fan, I would suggest fishing deep water slow and deliberately with as light of a jig as you can deal with and 4-6 lb line. The last fish I saw were in 33' of water close to the bottom. You may find fish scattered out in shallower water but I think the majority of the fish are deep. once you get the first bite the action could be great. Large mouth are another tough nut to crack right now. Try jigs with pork or plastic trailers in as light of a weight available and fish slow. Several colors will work. Slow-rolling spinners and crank baits as well as finesse plastic presentations like drop-shot, shaky or wacky will work good at times, you just have to experiment daily. Suspending jerk baits are a good bet anytime the water is in the 40's so don't rule them out Fish near rocks, bridge pilings, deeper docks and points. Catfish are definitely on the prowl. You can catch fish as shallow as 2' or as deep as 40' you just have to figure out what you want to try and stick with it until you find some biting fish. Anchor up in the shallow water on the north end of the lake in 2 to 8' of water and use fresh cut bait for big bluecats. Shad, drum, carp or sunfish are all good choices especially shad! You can find the bait in deep water by throwing a larger cast net until you are successful getting bait. On the south end of the lake it's best to drift in 20 to 40' of water with big chuncks of fersh cutbait and cover long stretches of main lake until you get bit. Once you find a good area repeat the drift. The hybrids and sandies are together and feeding out in deep water. Stay in water 25 to 45' and look for bait on your graph. When you see lots of fish and bait stop and drift if the wind is light or anchor if the wind is heavy and present 2 to 5" plastic shad immitations on a jighead from 1/8th to 3/4 oz 1 to 10' up from bottom depending on where you see the fish. Please feel free to call me @ 903-603-2047 or 903-887-7896 to book a guided fishing trip for whatever you would like to catch. There is 3 weeks of duck hunting left and I can get you in on that as well if you'd like. Thanks for reading this report and hurry to get in on the big bluecats or hybrids and sandies it's prime time!

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 21)

EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 71 degrees; 0.60 low. Largemouth bass are good working topwater plugs and jerk baits early on creek ledges, main lake points, and near boat docks and retainer walls. Shaky heads, jigs, and crankbaits fished near boat docks, brush piles, and timber are productive later in the day. Hybrids and sand bass are off main lake points and humps with slabs, swimbaits, and live bait. Crappie are excellent with jigs and minnows in brush piles, boat docks, and bridges in 15-28’. Catfish are excellent in 12-25’ with punch bait and cut bait.
