Because Life is Better at the Lake

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report January 22, 2019

Kings Creek Adventures
I started my career as a professional Bass fisherman in 2000 and claimed my 1st B.A.S.S. victory on the famous Sam Rayburn reservoir in 2002 and finished 3rd place in my first B.A.S.S. Tour event in Florida in 2002. I am currently a full-time fishing guide and offer my services on Cedar Creek Lake and surrounding lakes.

Hi folks, Jason Barber here with the www.kingscreekadventures.com fishing and lake report for Cedar creek lake. The lake is full and the water is stained, the temperature is running in the high 40's to low 50's...

The crappie are tough right now on the main lake but you can find a few around deep brush and roaming around deep flats near creek channel areas. Some fish are being caught in major creeks away from the lake as well.

Catfish are best shallow in the northern regions of the lake from 2 to 12' on fresh cutbait, but drifting is a great way to get a big bite... for the drifting try 20 to 40' and larger bait.

Large mouth are slow but can be caught around the docks near spawning creeks in 4 to 15' on jigs and crankbaits as well as chatter baits and other plastics. Rocks are another great place to look this time of year.

Sandies and hybrids are still deep chasing shad in 30 to 50' and should be targeted with plastic shad imitations on jig heads across the main lake from mid-lake south.

Thanks for reading and give me a call to book your next fishing trip! 903-603-2047
