Planning to fish Wheeler Saturday morning pending the weather. It opens at 7:00. Do I need to be there early to get in line? Is there usually a line?

This is also an open invite. Join me if you can.

No real long lines. The most I have seen is around 4 vessels queued up at the gate. But, it is an orderly affair and moves along pretty fast.

Most of us early types get there ahead of time and while we are waiting for the attendant to show up in the golf cart, we start rigging up. If you are at the end of any sort of line, be sure and pull off on the left shoulder . . . there is a merging FM road there at the entrance forming a "Y" and some fast vehicles come over a hill without good vision so stay to what would be the left.

Once you have driven down to the entrance and paid, there are 2 nice ramps so everyone is on the water pretty fast. Plenty of trailer parking slots within a quick walk from the ramps and a nice close bathroom before you jump in and take off.

So weird, I've loved in Weatherford my whole life and fished Gbury and Squaw creek but never Wheeler. I may join you. What are you fishing for? I don't know much about it other than its clearish and rocky.

There were 5 of us in line last Friday, and we were all on the water within 10 or 15 minutes.

Thanks for the info. I will be fishing for LMB. If its just raining I will be there. If there are thunderstorms that look like they will hang around I will probably pass.

I went out for a couple of hours this evening. This was my first chance to make it out to the lake.

It was an awesome place, big enough that we had no clue there were more than 5 yaks on the water, but small enough to can paddle it in less than an hour and a half I would assume. Also nice with the no wake.

I had a few small bass, much to small to bite chase my crank bait all the way to the yak.

Amazing how clear the water is.

I am trying to get my wife to go out next Saturday or Sunday morning so she can float around and hopefully I can catch a dang fish!!!

I was out there on Sunday as well. Super clear water, blue bird skies and no wind. Water temp was high 80's to low 90's. Marked quite a few fish on the graph suspended over ledges, but couldn't get them interested. Tried drop shot, Carolina around the grass, shakey head and crank baits with no success. Oh well, beautiful lake, probably fishes better when there is a little chop and cloud cover.

Me and a few of our buddies were out there Sunday too!!! Finally found a pattern that worked around 10 and caught a few small 12-15". Had fun, and a beautiful lake. Crystal Clear water, made it a treat to see the bass and blue gills every where. Also had a Fox greet us on the far side of the dam too, very cool. Can't wait to get back there with the kids!!!

I went for a few hours on Sunday afternoon. Had a few good bites but only caught this one. I saw many groups of bass this large and larger but could get them to hit. My buddy had 2 good ones on but didn't get them in his yak. Always a great little lake to go kayak fishing on.
