Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report for April 2024

While recent rains and a brief cold front have slowed down the Crappie action a bit, fear not – brighter days are just around the corner. With temperatures on the rise, we anticipate the Crappie bite picking up momentum day by day, promising even better fishing adventures ahead.

And let's not forget about our lively White Bass friends! Despite the temporary setback from the weather, they were putting on quite the show under the watchful eyes of circling birds before the cold front rolled in. Rest assured, as the weather warms, so too will the White Bass action, offering thrilling moments on the water for all our eager anglers.

Looking ahead to April, we're gearing up for some seriously good Crappie and White Bass action. It's a prime time to reel in those big catches and soak up the beautiful weather before the summer heat kicks in.

So don't miss out on the excitement! Grab your gear, pack your sunscreen, and head on over to Cedar Creek Lake for a fishing experience like no other. We'll see you out on the water!



Thank you for your loyal business!

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 17)

EXCELLENT. slightly stained; 87 degrees; 0.37 feet below pool. Hybrids and white bass are good at daylight on midlake points and drop offs along sandy flats throughout the dam area, Crappie Island, Key Ranch and the spillway humps in 13-22 feet. Cast spinners and slabs and look for schooling fish on these flats as well as deeper seawalls and shorelines. Then fish any hump in 17-25 feet throughout the lake to find fish stacked up in schools as the day heats up. Use spinnerbaits or drop a slab down to the bottom and work it fast up and down and the fish will hit it immediately. Also throwing out a slab and reeling it back with a slow retrieve is also working well. The evening bite from 5-9 p.m has also been very good. Hit up seawalls close to points in depths of 1-18 feet and cast rattle traps, spoons, slabs or sassy shads to get the hybrids to bite. The crappie bite has been challenging. Now Target crappie with small jigs in 5-12 feet under bridge pylons, hidden brush piles throughout the lake or under docks. Limits are being reported, although guides have been reporting very tough conditions with smaller sized fish being caught. Report by Brent Herbeck, Herbeck’s Lonestar Fishing Guide Service. The water temperature ranges from mid to upper 80s, and is slightly stained to stained heading south to north. Blue catfish are still in the deeper water with the best action on main lake humps in 12-24 feet with cut shad. During the dog days of summer try floating a bait across deep water in 15-30 feet, suspend the bait 2-5 feet down from the surface of the water to fish the upper column of the water. Channel catfish can be caught in most any cove or point on the lake with punch bait, cut bait, earthworms or shrimp. Report by Jason Barber, Kings Creek Adventures.
