So found a new creek today that had a ton of rapids, and up towards the top of the creek there were big fast moving rapids.. I was wondering when does a rapid get too much for a white bass?

Even if there are serious rapids, when the creek floods, it goes up and allows them to move up. Once it goes down they get trapped in the pools. I typically find most of my fish above and below them. Even in them if the water is muddy enough

Back in the '70s, I fished the rapids right below Texoma dam and caught a limit of white bass casting a #2 Mepps Aglia into the swift water from the bank and reeling back immediately.

If it's more than 3" deep it doesn't matter IMO... They'll swim right up it.


PB flathead 34.5 lbs - I know it's small but it was still the record for Lake Travis when I caught it!
PB Blue 58.5 lbs jugline 43.5 lbs on R&R which was the other Lake Travis record when caught.

That is my thought process after the last flood I abosolutely wore them out up there, now since its started to lower they've seemed to have disappeared. its probably 2-3ft deep up to a waterfall thats got about 1-2ft of water surging through
