I have been wanting to take the kayak down and try this area. Does anyone know if the sandies or crappie are in this early in the season?

I heard the other day, and it’s coming from a source who spends tons of time at the river, that limits of males have already been caught at Sulphur Springs. I keep up with this every year and routinely see people report catches of male whites and crappie from late December on.

Caught a limit last week of all males & half dozen crappie. This was about 1 mile down river from state park ramp. Just a heads up state park stays pretty well booked. Access is getting harder to find. We come up river from Buchanan it’s a longer trip, but it pays off if the fish bite. Toss a few jugs to check on the way back & it makes it worth while.

How is the run from Buchanan to the park, is fairly deep water with a prop or do you have to worry about shallow spots and rocks?

Plenty of water to run. It’s tricky at the mouth, but just follow the buoys. You’ll see a clear path once you hit the channel. Most of the water is 14-16ft now. At full pool there holes up to 20ft+. We’re good for this yr, but need a good rain this spring.

Not if LCRA keeps letting out water

My understanding is that Colorado Bend doesn't start up in earnest until well into April, but if it's been getting rain and flows, then maybe there's action. I'm in Austin right now, looking out my window at a blooming red bud, which is about a month early.

Your exactly right. They let it out as fast as we catch it.

We’ve always caught our biggest & most numbers in mid to late Feb. It’s been that way for the past few yrs.

Back eons ago when Lemons still had it, and normal water levels, they would open it the next weekend after deer season closed. We would put in at the ramp there and run down the river to around the TP&lL houses and start trolling, we would catch BIG males. Somedays not so many but then there were days we would sack em up!!!!! Again that ways eons ago. LOL

The state park is closed until Thursday, Jan. 14th due to someone in the office testing positive for Covid.
Sulphur Springs has been closed for hunting season but fisherman will be there soon enough to test the waters.
Water levels have held strong through the fall so it should be a good season for the whites.
