Just wondering if it is happening? I haven't send any reports about upriver or the rapids. I imaging the emerging stumps might be keeping some from heading up. Like me.

It was very tough this weekend for myself and a friend. We trolled up to the rapids, hooked one on way up there and he came unbuttoned. Got up there we caught 3 casting in about an hour and trolled back to the Rebecca Creek boat ramp. Caught a couple of largemouth on the troll on the way back, hit a brush pile for a couple of crappie(not keepers) and that was about it. Might want to fish the lake and hit some windy points. Not sure why the fishing is so tough up there right now. Probably a combination of factors such as dropping water level and we did have a very cold winter for southTexas. Maybe I’m just making excuses for not catching very many fish lately.

We have been still catching some fish.
It's no where what is was but.....

Wife/I fished Saturday 3-6:30 and we landed over 10.

2 Mini Stripes, 1 (big) Crappie, 8-9 Whites.
Some of the whites were jumbo females.

The bite turned on late, as we had 4-5 the first two hours.
No schooling action where I was.
Billions boats and some nuts out.

We trolled Shad Rap type lures / Umbrella Rigs.
Both long line and deeper Lead Core.

I'm a humble fisherman in the service of our Lord.
Started fishin at 5 years old and can't stop.
I've owned a boat every day from age 16.
I fish for every type of fish in every different way.

Thanks for the report. Were you upriver or in the lake? Just haven't heard much from the rapids this year.

All the ones I have found have been closer to brush piles. Not much top water action.

Dunno if the run is on. Temps were 60-61 today above Cranes Mill Point. Spent all day and only got 3 whites. Nothing in the morning calms. Winds really kicked up mid-morning. Headed up the mouth around timbers....lotsa graph traffic but none found my lines. Afternoon calm got three whites along bluffs all on Rapala minnow cranker. Odd day wind-wise....
