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 (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.
