I would trailer around to Kickapoo and launch right by the bridge. Go North under the bridge put the TM down and start fishing in any direction you want. The run into the actual creek is hairy if you don't know where you are going(or even if you do sometimes) but there is no reason to get on plane if you don't want to. Spinnerbaits, squarebills, jigs and t-rig. Livingston gets a lot of hate but there is a bunch of fish up to 3lbs in the lake and they aren't hard to catch.
