Heard the whites are thick at the gravel crossing in the river, anyone confirm this?


COMING SOON! .. THE STICKLE HOOK " the stay level sickle hook". sits level in the water with all knots.! Provides better hook sets and more natural jigging motion. No more adjusting the knot, gluing , or tying loop knots that cause the hook point to tangle in the loop, or worse knick the line.. The jighook that will make all others obsolete !

Probably take my son out there tomorrow. I'll follow up with a report. But every time I'm out there, I get skunked, but.... "They were biting on every cast yesterday."

My daughter and I put in at Cedar Gap and went upstream on Sunday. There were many boats out and everyone we saw and asked had between 0 to 4 whites. On the way upstream we got skunked. On the way back we caught 3 whites and a couple Black Bass. I'm not sure what is going on with the White Bass Run right now. Too early? Too late? IDK

My son went with his friend today and got skunked bank fishing. A kayaker had 10 on his line from up river. Im going Monday around 4 and hope to get some numbers. Anyone heard about the steps or log jam? The trend on here and other sites is the run is very sporadic at the moment.

Good luck thumb

It sure hurt my feelings seeing all the yaks and boats out yesterday as I crossed the long bridge. Maybe this weekend...

I went up past gravel crossing and caught about a dozen. I didnt get launched at cedar gap until after 10:00. I saw many people who got into the morning bite that limited out. River was FULL of boats and Yacs. I noticed many boaters that have Zero boat etiquette. I know you are in a hurry to get to your favorite honey hole, but dont blow by the other boaters at high speed. I'm on a flat bottom, but those poor Kyakers. You are responsible for your wake.

Got 8 keepers this afternoon In a couple hours. Mostly females filled with eggs up river from gravel crossing. It was pretty busy as well.

My daughter took her kayak to gravel crossing and worked her way up. She started trolling right at gravel crossing and started catching small males. She caught 30+ White Bass but they were all 8 to 9 inches. She caught 4 Keepers. She told me the water was thick with these small males, she could see them in the water everywhere. I'm going Sunday in my boat with her and am going to make a day of it. Hopefully a bunch of big fat females are right behind all these tiny males. fish

We put in again at Cedar Gap before daylight. Made it up to Gravel Crossing right before sunrise. We started trolling and working our way up river. We went up stream until we had to beach, then walked and waded further up. Then we trolled home. We caught 20+ fish. You could see the whites in the water. They were everywhere. Everyone was catching fish, just not like we should be with that many fish in the water. Nobody was limiting out. We fished for about 6 hours. Trolling, pitching and fishing from the bank and wading.
We caught 15 good keepers, nice big fish. 50/50 mix of males and females. Females were FULL of eggs. I will be heading back up this coming weekend. Got to take advantage of the run. In wont last forever.

Oh alright thank you! Do people fish right at the mouth of the river or further downstream? I was looking on google maps and theres a place on Fm 2484 that looks good but idk.

Look for Gravel Crossing further down 2484, right on the bend. Fish from there up for white bass right now.
