Gonna hit the Nueces tomorrow for one last trip. Hoping that the Rain we had on Monday night hasn't muddied it up cry ? My wife and son will be my fishing buddies and I told them if its Chocolate Milk, on the river, we will head to Choke and check the crappie/white bass out around 99 bridge or Mason Point. One year that happened and we ended up doing good at Choke. Anyhow it will be a day of fishing for us before I head back to work ! Will give a report when I return . smile Rio

That's typical spring white bassin on the Nueces. It's feast or famine but we've had a good run so far.
It's going to take a week or two to settle down, but the good news is you'll be able to get further upriver! banana

Rio, please post a report on Choke! I'm curious if it caught any water, not that it would be enough to make a difference in the lake level, but maybe some fresh water to oxygenate the water and turn those fish on around the feeder creeks with fresh flow.

Left early in the Dark and got home at Dark,, so after cleaning an ice chest full of fish I didnt get to bed until late !!!!!! Just kidding - roflmao But we did get in late ! tired
We got to airport ramp at 7:30 and yep ,,the river was up and flowing! We launched and checked the flow at the 1st rapids by old cr-p hole! I wanted the wife and son to see how the river can change with one good rainfall. It was really rolling at the 1st rapids and muddy ! We did'nt even have to use engine to get back to ramp ! smile We pulled out and headed to Sowells ,in 3 rivers, for breakfast. Always a great place to eat!
We then headed to 99 bridge and was amazed at the muddy water that was flowing there as well ! We saw one die hard boat that was trolling for whites as we viewed the ramp. We then decided to go to Mason Point. We arrived there and the water was muddy ! I was impressed to see that at least some water did get into choke ! My son wanted to see The South shore ramp to get a better perspective of the low water level, since he had'nt been there since it went down 20 plus feet!
We drove over there and really got a view of how low it was. The ramps were closed at south shore. I told my son and wife ,," Well since we've seen all our old Boat ramps, it wouldn't be complete unless we visited Calliham. Since Mason is just around the corner, i did'nt know if Calliham would be muddy as well but it was only slightly stained. We talked to some nice bank fisherman that said the water had stained up a little since yesterday. It was not the normal Choke emerald green, but fishable with a slight tea color. Since I had the john boat and no trolling motor, we fished around Calliham east bank and caught some crappie and few small bass on road runners fished in about 8 ft of water nest to stick ups. We left around 5:00 pm for the drive back to San Antonio. All in all, we had a great day ! It was good to see Choke again ! I love that lake and pray she will fill back up one day . wink

Thanks for the report Rio, and sounds like you had a good day!
You don't always have to limit out to have a good time on the river.
I'll probably make another trip down hopefully once the river clears up. I've got my old holes I just have to fish now that the water is up. thumb

Ditto....

Fished 930-330. 0, nothing, nadda; river the same color as creamed coffee. So how long will it take to clear?

Hey Rio, I believe it was my sons and I that you came across at Calliham fishing the bank that day. We caught a few crappie as well. Lost a big fat white bass that fell off the hook at the edge of the bank.
I don't believe the spawn is on yet, I may be wrong though.
