Has anyone fished this lake lately, I moved from Abilene and I'm trying it out now and can not locate the crappie. I'm in my two man pelican I have been all over the lake and even back in the creeks

The shad haven't started moving up in the creek just yet.Once they move in so will the crappie. Usually after thanksgiving or the first frost. 2cents

Been catching some off the main lake piers at night as well as the sail boat marina around the pilings during the day.They won't move up the creek until it gets colder and the shad move up.Normally after Thanksgiving is when they pick up in the creek.

Take your yak to the dam and put 2-3 jigs on you rod or rods. Just drift along with them at varying depths to find where they are and what depth. When you catch one or more drift the area again. There is almost no cover on the lake and they will suspend a lot. Near the dam it gets up to about 23 feet. Orange/chartreuse and black/chartreuse work great. If you have a fish finder and mark ANYTHING on the bottom, it will hold fish 365 days a year. Watch out for big channel cats that will readily take your jigs.

If that doesn't work try going off Winfrey Point and fan casting for suspended fish at 3-8ft down. Peg bobber or you can cast and jig it on the bottom like you would a spoon.

Fishing White Rock lake itself is hard fishing. You would be better off learning Hubbard, Joe Pool or Bachman Lake for crappies. It your willing to do some driving Cedar Creek and Tawakoni are even better. If you have a small outboard on your Pelican learning Lake Lavon would be well worth it. I have a Pelican and my all time favorite lakes are Tawakoni and Lavon. I wish I could learn Hubbard since it is so close to me.
