People were posting reports all over the place last year, so I figured we'd consolidate the topic this year...help everyone find the info faster and cut down on work for the mods...

I haven't been yet, but it's about that time, especially with this cold front...it appears that the river level is even higher than last year, so it may be more of a run up river than even last year...

post up the info if you go! I'm curious to how it's going to shape up this year after a really good year last year...

There are fish in the river from the airport down to the lake. If you know what you are doing you can pick up a limit of fish.

there's a bunch of places around Houston to get on some white bass....do a search on this forum page from the last year, looking at this time of year and into February, and you'll find plenty of places...the members on this forum are a great bunch and share lots of awesome information...

Anyone else been? I went yesterday and went south from 59, only ended up with 7. Was marking a bunch of fish, but they just weren’t biting.

Almost limited out today with minimal trolling.. caught 10 or so trolling.. then went to casting and caught several more. Trolling is def the for sure way to catch them south of 59 bridge. Saw another group with a stringer of at least 100 fish. It’s on down there for sure!

I finally have a report! went Saturday morning, got in around 10:30am at the airport ramp...ran all the way up to the shoals were we hit them last year, and they weren't home...headed south back down the river and started trolling small rattle traps and lipped divers...extremely slow...would pick up and run, and stop and troll when we saw bait action...ended up way down by the 59 bridge, but did not go south of it...it was slow for everyone else as well...scratched out 8, decent fish....all females with eggs, about a third of the way hydrated...

guess we were a little early...or they're south still...at least we got out though and gave it a shot...

Just like any pre-spawn/spawn fishing, cold fronts delay the movement too the shallows.. they might have even been shallow but a cold front will push them back towards the lake. I’ve been down south of 59 a few miles and been catching. Guides that are trolling down there are bringing in limits. Bite has been better around noon when the water warms up. Let a good warming trend show up and those fish will be up there.

A little late with the report, but we went down last Friday, put in at 59 and headed south. Started slow but picked up just as the water temp did, ended up keeping 54 and throwing back 8.

I think you've nailed it 100%...it's a little colder this year, which is keeping them downstream more than in past years...

come on warming trend! tired of this winter already...
