Done some traipsing around Aquilla since the season has been over, very nice looking. And for the guy with the climber, and why climbing sticks, I'm the handsome guy that walked by your camera this morning. And @3 other stands.

Looking forward to fall 2021.

There are a few who do. I usually see some turkey hunters every year I've camped at the W lake on opening day/weekend. And a few on the A lake. I've done my share of it too, when I was younger. Lots of pressure on opening weekend.

Finally! Grandbury gates are open again! Flow rate is 934cfs. Probably won't last long unless we get some more rain.

I can't say Kirby. There's just no telling what life will throw at me next.





Looks like the W lake is coming up, inch by inch.

Looks like Grandbury closed the gates Sunday night or some time Monday. I wonder if they will only release on the weekends this spring like they did the last few years, unless we get a sizeable rain.

How much do you feel like this changes the fishing? If it was large amounts they were releasing, obviously that would change things. Iíve had a hell of a time the last couple weeks finding a consistent pattern. Maybe the fishes are just shell shocked from the freeze still. Iíve been catching some, just working hard for all of them.

In all my years of fishing Texas tailrace waters below dams, and rivers, and some time in Ohio (marriage will make a man do things he otherwise wouldn't do ) when the lakes were frozen over and water was being released from lower surface levels as well as warmer months, I have found that the release rate makes a big difference when rates are high vs low. A slow or slowly increasing release rate lets the fish adapt to the new oxygen levels, water debris, and forage rate in the water. A high release will stimulate the feeding of some species while shutting down others at first. But sooner or later, everybody has gotta eat . It's knowing how to adapt fishing techniques to the "current" conditions for any given species (pun intended ). Over all, long release rates will stimulate the bite vs still water. Because fish use energy to stay in position in a current. And that energy has to be replaced. There by making them bite more frequent. Knowing your prey, where they like to rest, where they like to feed, what the current food sources are, are all part of the puzzle.


I've found various techniques that work for me for various given species. The best thing to do is find one that works well for you. That is kinda like public hunting: Gotta put boots...er...waders on, and pound the water to find what's most productive for you . And it's always better to ask certain things when your on the water than on a public forum. Doesn't hurt to watch other people on the water either. And what they are using. But if you like to fish with large crowds, just post up here where you were. And they will be there next weekend to welcome you back . I've seen it light switch in a week's time .

Just a note b4 you go, on the upper end, TFF reports that Kimball Bend and Plowman are closed, our nations finest website reports as open, call prior to going.

Recreation.Gov shows as open, but isn't accepting reservations until May 2021.

I was hoping Grandbury would open one of it's gates today or yesterday. But nada so far.


If I make it down there tomorrow, Saturday and/or Sunday, I'll check the parks to see if they are open.

Boat ramp was open at Kimble Bend today. Lots of boats out. No campers in the park. Bathrooms locked. Caught a little of everything today. But mostly crappie when I could get them to bite. Did catch a few keepers mostly on minnows. And a few on tube jigs. It was tough fishing. Sandies were all dinks except one. Only caught one keeper. Even caught a channel cat. And one 16" striper. Water temp when I left was 60 degrees where I was.


If you are running the river, or even open water, please have the courtesy to slow down if you run up on some boats that are fishing. It's a matter of safety for craft that are smaller than yours. And a courtesy as a sportsman. No matter how smooth your boat may ride, it still makes a wake. Don't be that rude person on the water, please.

I caught this funny looking crappie on a 3.5" bass minner last Sunday afternoon. Thick and tall feller. Little longer than my hand. Guess he thought he was a bass. Name:  20210307_195352.jpg

Thanks for noticing. Actually asked that question 2 times on this form, was about to ask a 3rd time.

2 people replied after my second time questioning.

Guess itís not important as fishing at the moment. 🤷🏻*♂️

My experience with Turkey on Whitney is that they have disappeared from a lot of areas. Was having this conversation with some lifetime residents over beers a couple nights ago. Their opinion is the hogs are eating the eggs or destroying the nests. Iíve hunted 80% of the units out here and have only seen/heard them in a few small areas over the last few years. I see them pretty often on some local ranches, but those are a few miles from the public hunting land. Iíve yet to visit A lake so I canít add anything there.

Maybe because there's not that many dedicated turkey hunters on this thread ? Like I said before, you'll see most of them out there on opening weekend. Not everybody out there post on this thread. Or is a member here. But a lot of them do read this thread. And I've met people out there who knew who I was. But I had never met them in my life before. So, just goes to show...



And I did answer. I'm guessing you just didn't notice. And what about your self? Haven't you started a few threads on this topic? (Aquilla comes to mind.) And haven't you even made some post on some other threads on public turkeys? It would almost lead one to believe, you are a turkey hunter too.

Do turkey vultures count? I see a lot of those around.

I haven't hunted it enough for turkeys to make a suggestion. I didn't see any toms the times I have been out.

Haven't been there in many years but after reading an article by TPWD that stated a banner year was coming, I thought I should investigate every area.....

Water temp was 60 when I got on it at noon today. And 65 when I got off this evening. Lots of dink fish. Of the keeper female crappie and sandies I caught have already spawned out. Caught most of the sandies on jigs. And most of the crappie on minners. But did catch a few crappie on jigs. Jig bite was tough for crappie. Used 2 doz minners on the crappie. They were hot on the medium-sized minners. They were even bite-n dead ones. But again, most of the crappie were dinks.

Not a lot of public land in Iowa. You can still get private access though. At least better than here.

The pics above were the only ones I remembered to take. I did hook another big cat on a jig in the same hole I caught the one above. It was on 6lb line. And pretty much just did what it wanted to. Ran a straight line away. Then pulled loose.


Took me a little while to find some fish that wanted to eat! But when I finally did, caught a little of everything. 3-10 FOW. And it was "ON" till it got dark.



In all, took 3 doz minners with me. Brought home 5 minners, and 6 blues (smallest was 15"), half doz nice crappie (through back a lot of 10 to 10-1/4" fish), few sandies, and a 19" striper. No green trash fish, thank you ! If you fish with minners, get the med or large. The little ones will only get you dink fish. And there's a ton of those. I had a few small minners in with the mediums. And that is all they would catch. Dink fish were even hiting the dead minners. But the bigger fish only wanted the larger minners. I rigged dead minners time and again just to see what would bite them. And it was dink crappie every time. I've got no idea how many I might have caught. I did get tired of catching dinks in this one spot. They were all 8 to 9-1/2" . But if I threw to either side of that spot, I sometimes did a bit better. And there was no telling what would bite.


I'm glad I didn't stay any later. Left the hole about 7:15. Forgot about the weather forecast. Water was like glass all the way to the ramp.

I was Out Saturday also. We were obviously in different places. I caught around 25-30 fish all on crappie jigs, 6 different species, with around 10 being LMB. Fixin to head back out now and see what the chilly night did to the bite.

Not soft! Just more ef"fish"ent!


Not my choice . I'm not driving. I'm not in my boat. I'm not wasting the first half of the day. I've been catching plenty in the evenings. I have things that need to be done in that first half that Uncle Sam will appreciate . There are plenty of things to do, or that need done so that I can go on a weekend day when not so many people will be out there . I saw a lot of people packed up today to go to the lake for the weekend, today. I suspect Sat and Sunday will be crowded since the weather is scheduled to be nice. I'll wait for a less populated Saturday or Sunday to go. It's a Good Friday to take off.


Hope my new motor for the GMC is done soon! Gonna have a whole bunch more ponies under the hood. Got the interior gutted for a new remodel too. Then a newer box on the back.

Went "catching" again yesterday . Lots of good sandies in the 12-15" range. Few were in the 11" range. Maybe 2 or 3 dink sandies total. All were spawned out. Only a few crappie this time with a few good keepers. No jig bites at all on either. No cats or stripers this time either.

Grandbury is releasing water at 459 cfs. Wish they had started doing that last Wed. And before I went "catching" Friday.
But that's OK. I'm OK with how it went.

Looks like the wind should only be 5-10 mph tomorrow (Thur) so I think I'll get the boat out. Got busy with work the past month or so and haven't been out much at all. Hoping to get into some stripers.
I did get squeeze in two quick outings to the Nolan for sand bass a couple of weeks back, and did pretty well. Wasn't much of a run this year, just not enough water flowing.
