There is usually an ongoing post every year but I don't see one. Any reports?

This is still pretty early in the season, and the last week has been pretty cold. Here's how I figure it though:

You know the whites are starting to run in the Nueces when people post pictures of full stringers, and they're at the peak there when the fishing reports go suspiciously silent.

A week later the red buds bloom in Austin.

The next week, if there's rain, and if it's a full moon, it's peaking at the steps.

So Granger probably has a couple of weeks yet. That's my theory. One of these days I'll turn that into a mathematical formula that will precisely determine the best place to find white bass, and I will share that formula with _no_one._

I actually went down myself yesterday afternoon to give it a try. There are a few small males being caught but the water is for sure a little cold still.

@Texjbq I think you're right. Everyone is too busy limiting out to go on the internets.

jas_mart has it figured out. Lake temperatures are currently 10 degrees or more colder than this date last year. There have been no recent rains to get the water moving. Most of the whites will be waiting a couple of weeks more before they run up the creeks in this area. Local water temperatures have dropped 2 and a half degrees in the last two weeks. Wait a little while and it will get much better. Patience is a virtue.

Today's report: 25 cars at the steps at 11 am. Water is up, but not flooded. Water dirtier than normal, but not muddy. I fished in a kayak from the primitive launch up to the steps. I saw one fish on three different stringers up near the steps. I caught 4 total, and no more than one in any location. Launching at the primitive is still a bitch....
