Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report for January 30 2020

Hi folks, Jason Barber here with the www.kingscreekadventures.com fishing and lake report for Cedar creek lake. The lake is 2' low and slightly stained to stained heading north with water temperature in the low 50's.

The crappie are still deep for the most part 22-40'+ but some fish are under docks and in brushpiles in 6-16' staging up for pre-spawn movements. Jigs and minnows are both good.

Hybrids and sand bass are in deeper waters from 24-45' relating to bait and can be caught vertically on shad imitations on jigheads deadsticking the bait 5 to 15' up off bottom depending on what you see on your electronics.

Large mouth are on brushpiles in 8 to 24' as well as on docks and rocks in 2 to 12' on chatterbaits, crankbaits and plastics depending on the mood of the fish.

Catfish can be caught deep or shallow, try anchoring in strategic locations on the shallow north end of the lake and drifting deep 20-40' on the south end. Fresh cut gizzard shad, drum, carp or bluegill are all good choices. Bigger bait is best for bigger fish.

Thanks for reading my report and please give me a call when you get ready to get out on the lake. 903-603-2047

Cedar Creek Lake

Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 22)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 82 degrees; 0.58 feet low. Largemouth bass are good with chartreuse flukes, diving crankbaits and Texas rigged plastic worms near brush piles, docks and timber in 14-28 feet of water. Hybrids and sand bass are good on main lake points, humps and flats using spoons, slabs and live bait. Crappie are slowing down as the lake turns to the fall pattern. Stick with it and you will find a few, try using minnows and jigs in brush piles, beneath boat docks and bridges. Catfish are good using live bait, punch bait and chicken liver.
