Rocktippedstick and I did a few months ago and the log jams in them were so bad I don't know that the fish could get anywhere. I haven't seen log jams that bad in a long time.

Go all the way up to the shallows. The past 2 weekends, limits were easy to come by.

We walked in to spring creek from 35 south of Valley View. We caught a couple of males and there was some guys who were closer to the lake than we were who caught a few. I'm not sure if we are to late or to early???
Where do you launch your boat at to get up spring creek?

public boat ramp just west of Jordan Park on E. Lone Oak Road.
Would like to head up east fork of trinity but that is just too long of a boat ride through the trees.

Question: When fishing a creek on foot, what is y'alls strategy?

Obviously there is a point where the water gets so shallow that the fish can no longer swim upstream. Do you start there and work your way back towards the lake? Or do you start closer towards the lake and work your way upstream?

I go as far up stream as I think they can go.

On Sunday we ran up Spring Creek from the lake. Was not able to make it very far past the railroad bridge. Ran into some sandies before RR bridge and after. Didn't get a limit but about half or a little more of what we kept were females. Caught a few crappie near mouth of creek

Lake Sommerville whites dont have normal white bass stripes. Some do but most you have to check the tooth patches in their mouth.

Tooth patch is not reliable. If a lake has hybrids in it and you catch a short fish that looks like a hybrid chances are it's a hybrid. You can look at the two whites and see the difference.

The state stopped stocking hybrids in Lake Somerville a few years ago. I guess you are saying these are the runts?
