Gonna fish Lewisville tomorrow. Went out scouting today and I was only able to find one spot to access and launch my kayak.

It's FLOODED of course.

Will the bass get up in the flooded stuff? Flipping picnic tables a good idea? Flooded gangways? Stop signs etc?

what do the bass do when there's this much water right during the spawn.?

Heavy rains cooled the entire lake. We’re warming up from that nicely so I wouldn’t hesitate to flip the shallows after the sun is up a while. Potential problem...they could be waayyyyyy back up in the bushes.


If you can't find em wind em.

Yesterday on Grapevine i fish from 5 am till around 6. I was very successful early with a frog and chatter bait . Both Dark colors. Once the fog cleared and sun came out some, I switched to a weighted senko black and blue. Most fish came out of 5 to 8 feet of water. I also found some very large schools of big sand bass in 17 foot near the dam.

Where did you put in?

I tried Murrell park...closed. Scott landing, closed.

I'm a kayak fisherman so I don't need a ramp. Just a spot where I can get pretty close to the water to put in.

Pilot Knoll on Lville, closed. I did find a little spot near tower Bay on Lville where I can put in kayak.

*Tower Bay is closed by the way lol

Go to Little Elm see if you can launch at cottonwood park over by the marina (it is a safe place to park), it is easy to launch at the LE ramp.

Quick update/report.

Tower Bay is still closed! saw at least half a dozen bass boats pull up and then turn around at the gate.

But the fishing was poor. Threw spinnerbait in flooded stuff for hours. Got shallow as you can get. Nada. Flipped brush. Nada. Trolled cranks in the Marina...zip.

Water was very muddy and TONS of debris in the water. Talked to three other anglers on kayaks and two bank anglers... only one person reported catching a fish...a small spotted bass.

That would be a darned good day for me, Chris. Last 2 days I've boated 3 fish total. One nice one, though.

With flooded lakes my go to will always be shallow. No matter what time of the year it is. As it gets warmer they may position on the deeper side of the flooded cover, but they will still be there if the water is up. This time of year on a flooded lake many of the fish may push so far back that you cant get to them.
