Crappie Report For Cedar Creek Lake April 12




Crappie will be in full spawn this month. We are targeting them around boat docks, bridges, and any other type of cover in shallow water. Jigs and minnows are both working well to catch the Crappie .

White Bass will also be spawning. Many have been in the creeks since early March but will be back into the main lake by mid to late April. This is the month that the lake really comes alive. The water will heat up into the upper sixties & seventies and the fishing will continually get better. Our cold fronts are becoming less frequent, and our nights are much warmer. All of this helps the patterns to regulate and be more consistent.

Expect April to bring some incredible fishing!

Fishing Report from TPWD (Apr. 24)

EXCELLENT. Slightly stained; 70 degrees; 0.40 feet above pool. Hybrid striped bass and white bass have made a full recovery from the spawn and are now back in the main lake in droves and are on a feeding frenzy. Look for heavy bird activity throughout the lake on flats and near the dam on edges of drop offs especially on cloudy and overcast days. The Hybrids and Whitebass have started schooling in water from 6-14 feet at the dam and any wind blown shallow point or seawall. Late evening schooling action is also happening in shallow coves and points throughout the lake. Reports of great catches using silver or white slabs and spinnerbaits and retrieving off the bottom at a very slow retrieve to catch these fish in depths of 8-16 feet of water. The crappie have also migrated back into the main lake. Look for them under bridge pylons or under docks where the depths are between 3-10 feet. Guides have been reporting exceptionally nice catches on sunny warmer days. Report by Brent Herbeck, Herbeck’s Lonestar Fishing Guide Service.
