Let us know how it goes. What you used, how far you waded and in what direction. I plan to go out there early next week. I put in at rebecca creeck boat ramp 2 wks ago and headed down river and landed 3 white bass. chartreuse clouser. I would like to know if they've made it all the way to rebecca creek rd.

Joe - I fished just upstream of the bridge for most of the morning and only caught 1 14" white on a chartreuse clouser. Didn't wade much because the water seemed pretty deep and you can walk the bank some. The water gets squeezed at the bridge and is pretty rapid, then slows down again below that and could be a good place to try. Fish were hitting the surface occasionally and saw a few suckers. One guy fishing there said he caught 20 last week.

Where is Rebecca Creek boat ramp?

Rebecca creeck boat ramp just above canyon lake on the nrth side of the lake. If you go to google and type in " white bass fishing in central texas places to go " a tpwd web site will pop up and you can find directions to the boat ramp there. You have to have a kayak to fish in this area. You put into the creeck and padle out to the river. It was a real nice place to paddle the water was clear to about a distace of 5ft, and alot of action on top when I was there.

Thanks, I think I saw that ramp looking for the place to fish, that I never found, in the Cypress Creek neighborhood, . Didn't realize that was Reb. Creek. It's so confusing. :?

I fished from Tejas all the way down to the lake on Friday. I was surprised to see a bunch of other fly fishermen. Most of us caught a few fish, but it was clear that they were straglers. The run appears to be over.

bassackwards is right. I went up on Friday and the fishing definitely has slowed down. I caught one and saw a few but nothing like it was the previous week. Maybe with the rains we are supposed to get today the action will pick back up.

The fish are back at Tejas. Caught around 25 this afternoon. At least half were large. Even caught one hybrid.The water is above the low water bridge down by the lake. You were right about the fish moving back up with an other rain. Good call Ron.

I've done this before

I think it was 1994 (a year that I needed good fishing), I caught 170 in 15 hours spread over 4 weeks.

I only filleted 17 males.

they get smart.

I mentioned one morning at Medina where I caught 11 fish in an hour before sunrise, then caugth 2 more in the next 2 hours. Another rain predicted on Friday and Sat. - we'll see what effect that has. When I was up there 2 weeks ago, the flow was down to 100 cfs. There were only a couple of people that were catching copious fish, most folks were getting 1 or 2.

So, will it be fishable on Sunday? How long do you have to wait after it stops raining?

24 hours, generally, but I've caught fish in thunderstorms, and seen them jumping muddy rapids like salmon.
a good idea is to check flows from here:
http://www.swf-wc.usace.army.mil/cgi-bi ... Hydrologic
they listed 309 cfs for yesterday, but it's bound to go up today and tomorrow.
the lake level since then shows a 0.6' rise.
rain is breaking into scattered storms for tomorrow morning then ending.

all of this is good for the fishing.
