Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report For March 3

The lake is sitting at almost full pool, and you know what that means - dock shooting season is almost here. Right now, most of our Crappie are in a pre-spawn pattern and staging in creeks, hanging around bridges, deeper docks, and brush tops. As the weather warms, you'll find more and more fish on boat docks. Cedar Creek Lake has tons of docks, and an experienced angler can easily fill their limit during spring by simply shooting docks. However, you must bring your A-game, as with a full lake you'll have to be able to shoot your jig under some of the lowest docks to find the fish.

White bass are also starting to move into the creeks and can be caught on spinners or small swimbaits.

Catfish are biting on live and cut bait, while largemouth bass are biting jerkbaits and topwater lures.

Now is the time to get out and enjoy the great spring fishing Cedar Creek Lake has to offer! Our boats operate daily.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Nov. 22)

GOOD. Water normal stain; 61-63 degrees; 1.18 feet below pool. Expect the water temperature to decline past the 60 degree mark in the days to come. White bass up to 16 inches are being caught consistently using the Dennis Christian Saw Tooth retrieve with shad colored or shiny spoons, Bo Spinners from Mark Bovee or Mepps #4 spinners. Fall and winter months always bring larger sized white bass and very good opportunities for trophy hybrid striped bass action. Excellent catches are being reported by anglers of hybrid striped bass being caught up to 24 inches with the average being 18-20 inches. These along with the white bass are being caught in 12-16 feet of water off of wind blown lake points on several spots throughout the southern half of the lake. The Crappie bite is showing its true colors! Some days have been exceptionally productive, yielding fantastic catches. Some days have been very tough with changing weather conditions and cooler water temperatures. The fishing will get better as the next cold front passes.
