Nobody has been to the river yet?

I might make a run out there this weekend. Will post a report if I do.

We have a 4 day trip planned weekend after next. Late Feb to early March is almost always a good bet though.

I was at River Ridge last weekend. We caught 12 Saturday and 15 Sunday between four people. I talked to Jane Sunday as we were leaving, she said that's about what everyone else was doing, south of her place seemed to be better than north. We fished north. Water was @16.5 at the Carthage gage, it was a little muddy and cold. With all the rain forecasted for next week I would keep an eye on the water level.

copy info below and search in browser. (Carthage gage info) update # of days you want to see. Good Luck!

It's good to hear there are at least a few fish coming up. I imagine the rain will help bring some fish up when the river rises. I use the Beckville gauge, according to it the river has been lower than we usually see it this time of year (fluctuating quite a bit actually). No doubt the rain will change that. I'll be watching the weather closely over the next week, our annual 4 day trip is the weekend after next, so I'm gonna be there one way or another. I've only had one bad trip out there in 12yrs, and the river was out of it's banks that trip. If it's 17' or lower, game on! Above 17' on the Beckville gauge gets a good bit more challenging.

Got there about noon today. Caught a fish here, a fish there, mostly males, maybe ended up with a dozen, quit fishing about 3;30. Worked over the sandbars, known hotspots, went back up in Socogee creek, everywhere but the mouth of the creek. That's because there were a couple guys already there and they were doing better than most, but looked like mostly males and even that action wasn't stellar. Saw other people doing about the same as I did, looked pretty slow. The river is LOW, need that rain coming this week badly. I bet they're staged and ready to run, just need some water.

Ended my day by hitting something submerged and bent the prop shaft. It's insured, but only have 7 business days to get it fixed before I head back out there for four days.

Good report...sorry you bent your prop shaft, hope you get it fixed in Time.


The driving force and secret desire of every bass fisherman, is to one day be a crappie fisherman............Could it be that the good Lord just smilies and looks the other way when a fisherman tells a lie?

We were there yesterday as well. Didn’t catch a white bass until we made it down deep into a well known creek. Only caught 2 males then. Did catch quite a few crappie though. Too low right now, seriously. Give it a little while. Save your gas for now.

I have a buddy with a marine mech shop, just talked with him, he said get the parts and bring him the LU and he'll swap it out for me in a few hours.

Thanks......

Don't know about the ramp at River Ridge. I started using the McFadden ramp last year even though we stay at RR. It's closer to where I like to fish, and has more parking. If you like fishing Murval Creek then RR would be better.

And conditions will change significantly before the end of the month.

My son and I went this weekend, we launched at McFadden and went up river. It was a grind both days. First day we caught only 12 but mostly females, second day we caught 24 and majority were males.
The ramp at River Ridge I believe is not usable because both Jane and Tom were using McFadden. After all this rain the bite should be good as long as the river is not out of its bank. Met the Game Warden Mr. Rayburn - SUPER NICE GUY!!!! If you see him on the river, Thank him for his service.
Hope this information helps - Good luck to everybody!

Nice catches ! In the 4th picture is that what i've always known as a Grinle fish ? First time i ever saw one was back in the 60's at lake Winnsboro over at Taylors Little Horn baitshop . Some guy had caught two and left them on a fish chain at the boat dock . Biggest darn things i ever saw !! I thought they were some kind of bass but was told they were Grinles .

River Ridge update. Yes our ramp is open. We were at McFadden because it was shorter to our fishing spot and much easier ride for our customers. It was cold and rainy.
That being said, we caught limits a couple days. Was excited because they had kicked in then we got rain. Up 12 feet in the last 36 hours. We started launching at our high water ramp today. Canceled trips today and tomorrow so we can locate fish and get back on them.
I did get my website updated today. www,riverridgetx.com.
If you want to see pics you can go there.
It is wet, wet, and some more wet!,,, we will be out catching fish tomorrow..
Good luck and be safe!,,,,

23.5' on the Beckville gauge right now. looks like it's cresting about there. Hopefully it'll drop a bit by the time we get there late next week.

Where is the McFadden ramp located? Is the ramp good when the water is this high? I am familiar with the River Ridge ramp.

The McFadden Ramp is at the end of County Road 438. Not sure at what level it becomes unusable. I imagine it isn't a viable option right now though. River is at 23.4' on the Beckville gauge.

Has anyone put in at the public boat ramp at the 2517 bridge after all the rain from last week? Planning a trip for this Saturday ( 2-22) and was hoping the river was not too high. I know we are expected to get more rain during the middle of the week so hopefully not flood rains...thanks for any input

I haven't put out there but I looked at the ramp yesterday and it is still usable at this level.
