USCG Auxiliary
I have been a volunteer member of the USCG Auxiliary since 1995 and moved to Cedar Creek Lake in the same year. I am married and have to grown sons that married and have their own families. My wife is a past member of the Auxiliary as well and we are very active in the Boater Education programs that the Coast Guard Auxiliary has to offer. I am the Vice Flotilla Commander for 5-14 here at Cedar Creek Lake.

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Feb. 12)

FAIR. Water stained; 52-53 degrees, 2.05’ low. Largemouth bass are fair on plastic worms, chatter baits, spinners, and jigs 8-12 feet around docks, rocks, and brush piles 8-24 feet. Hybrids and sand bass are in deeper waters from 24-45' relating to bait. They can be caught vertically on shad imitations on jigheads deadsticking the bait 5' to 15' up off the bottom, depending on what you see on your electronics. Crappie are still mostly deep 22-40 feet, but some caught in 6-16 feet near docks and brush piles staging up for pre-spawn movements. Both minnows and jigs are effective right now. Catfish can be found 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 excellent choices. Bigger bait is best for bigger fish
