Has anyone fished Cleburne State Park lately? I will be fishing there Easter weekend for the first time. Clear or Murky water? Water temp? Looking for any advice or suggestions. Thanks guys!

Never been there, heard it is real nice though. Supposed to be a fairly clear lake I believe. Let me know how you do.

It was extremely windy and the lake was up. I didn't get to fish a ton. A lot of cat tails to flip. I plan on going back next month.

Conditions:

Clarity: Clear
Water Temp: 62-65 deg

I saw some bass shallow, but they spooked very easily because of the clear water. I'm used to fishing dirty water, so I have a lot to learn. Anyone else that has any information on this lake, please post here.

Hi jerod 14,

Assuming you are bass person. I fish Cleburne SP quite a bit targeting crappie and sand bass. Saturday after cold front had come through fishing a bit tough. I did manage some fish for the table and a few catch and release small bass. I typically use light & ul gear and fish out of canoe or kayak. Besides crappie and sand bass, have also caught LM bass, catfish, and even a few google eyes (warmouth). Saturday water clarity 5', surface temp 61.5 deg. Caught all my fish on minnows. Crappie were all in 10-17' of water. Sand bass all caught in 17-21' of water. All fish were caught just off bottom. Usually sand bass cooperative, but couldn't zero in on them this time. When you do find them, you'll more than likely catch a few over the current lake record of 14.5 inches. I had 2 (out of 7) greater than 15" Saturday, and no fish < 10". Week before I had 3 (out of 20) 15" or greater, and only 1 under 10". Solid fish on light / ul gear!

...Oh! Forgot to mention that Easter weekend I had a tussle with a huge common carp, which I fought on light crappie rig for 15 minutes or better. Have caught many carp on dough baits, corn, and crawlers, but never had one take a live minnow before! Got her up next to the canoe and unhooked her to fight again. Some fun!

Thanks for the input. I may go back later and see if I can flip the reeds and hit the dam to see if there are any bass coming off their beds. Thanks again. Tight lines!
