Cedar Creek Lake Crappie & White Bass Fishing Report For March 24




Crappie have been all over the board lately. We’ve seen great days and we’ve seen tough ones. This is typical of March with big temperature swings & high winds with every cold front. As April approaches we should start settling into a steadier pattern and big stringers of fish.

White Bass have made a move into the creeks to spawn. The main lake has been somewhat tough fishing for the White Bass. Expect that to change in about 2-3 weeks as we see more fish showing up. Forecast for late March is great. We have better weather on the horizon and warm temps which will surely have the fishing good again.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Feb. 22)

FAIR. Water stained due to rain and wind ; 53 degrees; 0.05 feet below pool. The white bass are staging for the spring spawn and heading into shallower water, 20-30 feet, and also into any shallow creek that has flowing water. Hybrids and white bass are still being caught deadsticking in 25-35 feet of water. Deadsticking utilizing a thumper and a splasher with deadsticking lures with a 1-1.5 ounce jighead with a tandem hook or jig above it paired with a small plastic fluke. You must keep your drift speeds under .5 mph with the ideal drift being .3 mph utilizing drift socks to keep you slowed down in windy conditions. In the weeks to come Hybrids and White bass will continue to migrate to the shallower water from 10-25 feet to spawn and will be easy to find. The crappie bite has picked up in the creeks on the far south end of the lake due to all the rain and the creeks filling up. If you can find a brush pile near a dock you can find them stacked up but most of the crappie have migrated into the creeks or shallow water now. Guides have been reporting exceptionally slower days but getting nice catches on sunny warmer days. Report by Brent Herbeck, Herbeck’s Lonestar Fishing Guide Service.
