I was able to get out to Medina twice last week. Both days I only fished 3/8 and 1/2 oz jigs with a paddle tail fluke for a trailer. Fish were caught in anywhere from 6" to 30' of water.

The 1st day it was after the big cold front. It was 29 when I hit the water. I fished for around 6 hours and ended up with 8 nice size bass. The biggest one being almost 2.5 lbs. Everything else was at least 1.25 lbs. Even though I didn't catch many it was a really good day.

On the 2nd trip I ended up with 3 in about 3 hours still using a jig. The biggest was a little over 2 lbs. My buddy was fishing a shaky head and a drop shot. He caught several fish on both lures.

Anyone know if there are any white bass left in Medina to have a run upriver?

I caught a white bass about a year ago, near a main lake point at the mouth of a cove. So there are some in there at least. That being said, it is the only white I have caught there in the last several years. Also, it is hard to get very far up river with the lake level dropping, unless you are in something with a shallow draft like a kayak or the boat that is in your sig picture.

I think TPWD only stocked the lake with LMB fingerlings when they restocked the lake a few years ago.

Short answer, maybe smile

I've never gotten a white bass out of Medina. As many flukes and flickering shinny lures I've thrown out there I feel that I should have had at least one if they are still in there. laugh

That's a shame, as I practically grew up and learned to fish on that lake, and remember the times I had as a kid, walking the banks near Leibolds point, dragging a stringer in the water because I couldn't lift it.
I haven't fished Medina in years, but I always looked forward to the white bass run when I did.

I talked to a fella the other night and he said he’s been catching whites and hybrids/strippers around the Thousand Trails area.

That's the area of the lake that has been the historical staging area before they move up into the river.
Most runs are always spotty, and drought and low water levels, plus the lack of public access over the years, has lead to weak run reports during the last few years.
I always had my best luck when the lake was low and I could walk from Mormon's bluff all the way beyond what was "Pop's Place" at Alamo Beach.
Can't hardly do that anymore since people think as the lake recedes their property extends to the waters edge. bang

Thanks for the info on the white bass/hybrids/we call them stripe in TN. I'll have to give those areas a try next time I'm out there. Those are great fighting fish.

I went out Friday for a bit. I didn’t find any fish in the creeks at all and didn’t see any beds anywheres. Finally caught fish on the main lake gravel banks (yeah the whole lake is gravel banks), the only lure they’d touch was anything plastic on the bottom. They wouldn’t touch any of my moving baits, might have just been one of those days though. The lakes a dropping!

What ramp do you launch from ? Last time I went I had hell by myself at county ramp.
Good thing the water was still a little warm last October cause I had to get wet getting from truck to boat.


NO FISH NO FRIEND !!!!!

Reds probably the best at this water level.

Last I launched at Joe's his main ramp was closed, but the side ramp was easy to launch from.

The county park main ramp is a little shallow but should be okay again when it gets a foot lower and hits that next section, it looked a tad steeper. I still use the county park and launch from the gravel towards the courtesy dock, but I only use it during the week so there arn't usually any people there.

I launched at the county park, launched off the gravel and it was way better than the ramp. It’s mostly a rock bottom and as long as you read the bottom, you can see where it drops off.
