I'm trying to plan our 3rd Annual Guadalupe River Fishing Retreat with trip with Olhipi, Banker , and Mike, USMC-GY. We will be fishing Dunlap and Placid with Chuck and Mike, but we would like to hit Lake LBJ and Inks Lake for some crappie fishing. When would be a reasonable time frame for the spawn given the weather patterns we have been seeing.

I've caught them in spawn from late February to mid/late April. Just depends on how the winter goes. Early/mid March would be the best time overall.
I'm on other forums that deal with the old turbo powered Buicks.;)

Sounds like a fun trip. Have always wanted to fish the Guadalupe River. Going to LBJ tomorrow with one of the local guides to do a little scouting and try out some new jigs.

Look inwardly and upwardly and you will find the answer you are looking for.

What do y'all think the water temp needs to get to for them to really turn on in the Guadalupe River lakes?
