Because Life is Better at the Lake

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report for February 8, 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 with the clarity being more stained as you head north. The water temperature is ranging from the low 50's to the low 60's depending on where you are and time of day and the fish are on the move!

The crappie are showing up on deeper docks and marinas in 6 to 15' as well as up major creeks. Jigs and minnows will both work well. There are also fish still hanging deep in 24 to 40' suspended around bait if you search for them.

Large mouth are moving in and setting up in spawning areas with some fish pre spawn and some already in very shallow water. Try shallow in 1 to 4' in the dirtiest water and a little deeper where the water is less stained. Jigs and crankbaits around docks are good but start looking on the bank with spinner baits, squarebills and chatter baits.

Hybrids and sand bass are showing up way up the creeks already and staging on points and humps adjacent to the major creek arms. You can travel up the creeks and fish traditional creek baits like small jigs and crankbaits as well as spinners and swimbaits. You can fish the points and humps with the same baits or use minnows and fresh shad on bottom to catch them too but you'll have to deal with a few catfish along the way.

The catfish are scattered throughout the lake and can be found deep on the south end or shallow on the north end and possibly anywhere in between. Fresh cut shad or rough fish is best.

Thanks for reading and give me a call to book a trip. 903-603-2047
