Has anyone had any luck with crappie on white rock creek between northwest highway and greenville ave? Ive tried a few spot this week but no luck not even a bite. Water crystal clear and thin layers of ice at bends. Water also not to high seems like perfect conditions once you find a place to climb down to get to a good spot.

White Rock's peak has already come and gone this winter. We were taking limits a few weeks ago, up until about last weekend, when the threadfin finally showed up. The crappie are definitely still there but with the shad so thick now, literally all the crappie have to do is open their mouth to eat. You'll catch a few, but it's going to be damn near impossible to get a limit. You'll catch/snag more shad than you will crappie. The good news, there are plenty of other creeks in the area to hunt down some fish. Just gotta get out there and explore.

Thanks for the heads up. White rock Creek must be an early winter creek for crappie then, if theres no more action happening. I've been fishing other creeks but I just wanted to get away from the crowd and decided to head up there since I've never been there before but thanks for the heads up.

I've fished the main lake, but never the creek area. Is it the creek area south of the spillway and 78? Thx.

Nope. It`s the area North of NW hwy & w Lawther Drive.Everyone would be all on top of each other at the famous bend and the W Lawther bridge thinking that was the only place to catch them but I would park @ Skillman & Merriman,follow the trail to the WRC and Jackson Branch confluence and get em.Most times I would be the only one there because it was a walk no one wanted to make but in my case it was worth it with just a Jig & Bobber set up and a bucket ! MOST TIMES 2cents

Does anybody bass fish in that creek during the winter. Where there's baitfish there's usually bass. Just wondering!

No! You park right on Marriman. There is a designated spot there just before the Skillman stop sign and you will not be ticketed. I was a few years younger when I did it. roflmao

You don`t have to go all the way to the Jackson branch.There is plenty of fishable water before you go that far along the WRC trail.There are creek bends & debri piles with deeeeep holes along the way.
