U would thinks it's early for the hybrids but how the weathers been, you would be surprised. If there's shad in there, they're in there. Some creeks I know already have sandies and hybrids running. Not as thick as the place me and iluvfishin went to but they are in there. You must look harder padawan. Seek the shad and u will find the hybrids and sandies right on the edge of the current. Fish u must.
