Default White Bass 2018

I've been thinking about the sandie run for a while and the Wading for Whites thread just ignited that fire.

Let's see all your white bass gear and best of luck to everyone bringing a mess home every time!

I was fortunate to squeeze a couple days off this weekend and want to give it an early go. Any ideas around the Texoma/Ray Rob area I could concentrate on?

I’ve been a couple times to the Nueces. Had decent luck but nothing spectacular. Think I’m going to try choke canyon next.

The only thing I'm excited for during the white run. Nothing like slamming them on light spinning gear in a small creek.

Sandies are fun and all but hybrids are what I'm looking for

Thats what I found. Just to be clear, I havent been white bass fishing in 30 years. I think its a week or 2 early for the sow run. They may be close to the lake or even in the lake at the mouth of thr rivers and creeks.

Yeah it might be early still. I went to three rivers last weekend and couldn’t catch them to save my life.

That weekend should be pretty good still. The big females haven't moved up the creek yet.

You might try the spillway below Lake Lewisville. It's been decades but I caught some there once upon a time. Access is limited so you probably want to check before you go.

You might also try the Greenbelt park up towards Lake Ray Roberts (not the 380 Greenbelt but next park upstream) or below Ray Roberts itself. Also, there's the Lavon spillway. And I've heard about, but not fished, Rowlett Creek which feeds into Ray Hubbard. I used to fish Stewart Creek which feeds into Lewisville on the east side and caught several sandies even though I was looking for crappie.

We launched at the Trinity in Riverside 2 days ago and trolled all around and drop shotted in 42’ of water. Caught one female that looked to have eggs. Water was a greenish clear. They should be in there by now. Confused!

I live on the north side of lake lewisville and have always been interested is fishing some creeks. What is the approach? Any tips on locating a good starting spot? What am I looking for? How far up the creeks from the lakes do they go?

Just looking to learn something new.

Spent some time reading TFF today, And stared at a map for about an hour. I am going to grab a few poles and check out a few spots. I am used to fishing whites under docklights in the spring, that is a blast, but I wanna try something new.
