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.
