Oh heck ya, nothing like a good stringer of whites! I need to find a place closer to the house but usually do good on the Trinity when I'm able to go.

Man! Can't wait to get after them on Waco and Granger. Won't be long. February through May when the whites and crappie are up shallow in the creeks is my favorite time of year!

Found a few today in a creek that drains into White Rock creek above Livingston. My son landed a nice little crappie and we had several yellow bass that were too small for me to want to deal with. Still a nice couple hours before the light ing pushed us back to the truck.
Iím hoping we get another influx of water soon. Creek was a decent level but not flowing at all. Maybe if Livingston dam opens up a touch we can get some movement and hammer them.

I went yesterday for a couple hours, caught about 50. Brought home 10 of the bigger ones. Two and half hours from the shoreline. Eighth ounce so silver/blue rooster tail. Left them biting.

If a fella wanted to take a 4yo boy on a white bass fishing and camping trip within a couple hours of San Antonio, where might he look? Got a little paddle powered boat for us and would like to get him on some hot fishing this spring if possible.

Many years ago we would tear the white bass up at the 99 Bridge. Would fish all night long with minnows down in the river channel.

We've had some good catches on LBJ up towards the Inks dam. Right past the first set of boulders you gotta navigate through. Even get into the occasional hybrid.

I've been to the San Gabriel above Granger on consecutive weekends with no luck.
Saw one guy with a nice stringer but overall it's very slow. Fly fisherman seem to have some luck.

This front will shut Granger down. They want that water about 59* and as it gets warmer they'll get more active up the skinny water.

My family used to camp at Gorman falls every spring break (when I was very young, pre-TPWD purchase). White bass were thick back then. Tons of old family photos with tons of whites. Later on, we had a small place below Max Starke Dam on the upper end of Lake Travis. We caught trainloads of white bass from the bank in the spring. I had decent trips to Reimers- but never consistent. I miss doing it and happy for those that have close access.

The river areas and shallow flats will heat up long before the main lake bodies do . I've seen and noted as much as a 15 degree change in surface temps between the two, river/creek water vs main body water. We have some more warm days and temps coming this week and next. They sandies, will be looking for water temps in the 48-54 where the water is moving. A lot of the hatch survival rate depends on moving water for the eggs. They can and will drop eggs in the main lake. But survival rates go way down because lack of moving water to keep stuff off the eggs.



I've also caught my larger fish during Dec-Jan in flowing rivers below dams with a weighted bobber, and 3-5 foot leaders. Even when there's ice on the shore line, they will bite. Everybody has to eat sooner or later.


Got a coworker who was catching B-bass on Grandbury in 10'-15' last Sunday. I told him the depth he needs to focus on last Friday . He's fishing another tournament this coming weekend. He said he was surprised when he landed a 5+, two 4+ and several 3s. He lives on the lake. And fishes every chance he gets. It will be right back to the pattern that was happening before the cold came, this weekend. And then a very rapid pre-spawn staging with the warm weather we have coming.


If we don't have any water flow in the creeks and rivers, I'm going to focus on crappie. They will stage up in large groups waiting for the warmer water. And are usually right in and behind the sandies when the water is moving mildly. But hold to structure in groups until the water temps reach spawning temps.

Interesting. Thanks for the tips. So that means crappie stacking to deep brush in river channels?

If weather is good may head up river after whites this weekend..

Mike, We need to get together and go fishing soon. I'm living in Benbrook now and can see the dam from my backyard.

Let me know when the whites and crappie start biting good.

That would be fun! There's a ton of hybrids in that lake. They've been stocking them for over 25 years. Almost every year.

I used to fish and hunt that lake all the time. It's close to my house for fishing. And it was the first public lands I ever hunted back in the early '80s. I know almost every inch of that ACE property. Lots of great history there too.

That sure worked below Buchanan years ago. Can you still get down there?

No access to below many dams. Many Corp of Engineers Lakes have normal access remaining. LCRA as an example blocked off. fenced off. Cables across rivers. As if a determined madman can not walk in thru the woods to cause damage? Feds for a change have shown more common sense on this matter and consideration to the behaved outdoors folks. I used to love fishing below Buchanan. No can do. Warmer days and whites at Granger beware. I'm coming and my major good fisherman grandson is coming with me.

Checked one of my holes in White Rock creek. Fished about hour and a half and kept what i wanted to eat. Were not picky on color either. Caught on both Silver/chartreuse and Black/Hot Pink slabalicious from mr crappie.
