Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report for January 13, 2014

Hi folks, Jason Barber here with the www.kingscreekadventures.com fishing report for Cedar Creek Lake. The lake level is now at 3.29' low and the water temps are in the 40's. The clarity is stained to muddy but that's common for this time of year. The crappie are going to be deep for the most part, search the south end of the lake near the dam. Locate fish on your graph in 30 to 50' of water and try jigs and minnows to get them to bite. Some fish will start to move into shallower water with each string of warm days we have especially on the extreme north end of the lake. Just keep an ear out in the crappie fishing circles and you will start hearing rumors of shallower fish. then you can start fishing to see if the rumors are true. Catfish are still feeding good, try shallow water on the north end of the lake. Fish as shallow as 2' and no deeper than 8' and you should stay in the fish. Fresh cut shad is the best bait but things like carp and drum will work good too. Drift the deep end or south end of the lake with the same baits in 25 to 45' of water and you should find active fish there as well. Largemouth are going to be on rocks, brush and docks, try slow-rolling a spinnerbait or crankbait or fish finesse jigs and plastics slowly in 2 to 10'. You will find some fish near the many brushpiles in various depths. Use c-rigs, jigs and dropshots to pick up a bite here and there. It will be pretty tough fishing but stay with it and you will hit paydirt eventually. Rat-LTraps fished randomly down the shorelines in 2 to 8' of water on the south end are a good choice when all else fails. The hybrids and white bass are in deep water and the bite is on, try locating bait and fish on the graph in 30 to 50' and present plastic shad imitations to the fish. Hold your bait as still as possible with no more than a slow short movement here and there for best results. The fish will be from 1 to 10' up off the bottom so pay attention to that as you fish and it will make a difference. Fish just above the school. Drift if there is no wind but anchor if you have to. Duck season goes for two more weeks. If you are interested in booking a duck hunt or a fishing trip please feel free to call me @903-887-7896 or 903-603-2047.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 28)

EXCELLENT. Water normal stain; 81-84 degrees; 3.95 feet low. Fishing continues to be excellent with patterns similar. Crappie are excellent in brush piles in 10-14 feet of water minnows and small jigs. The fish are starting to transition into the fall pattern. White bass and hybrid bass are excellent, surfacing on top chasing shad. Rattletraps and spoons are working good, but once the fish quit schooling, go to humps using a silver slab. Largemouth bass are excellent shallow feeding early in the mornings and late in the evenings, using chatterbaits and buzzbaits against rocks and docks. Some fish on brush but the better quality is coming shallow. Catfish are good on humps with live shad. Report by Kyle Miers, Lake Country Outfitters.
