Fished from Rowlett Creek Preserve entrance to Firewheel Pwky... No bites, and saw no bait fish. I did notice a bunch of fishing gear trash (which is terrible) in the area, so it tells me other folks have been fishing the same spots.
Questions:
1. Where are the bait fish? If there are no bait fish, then there inherently are no sandies and/or crappie.
2. Has anyone had luck in this area?
3. Is there better fishing north or south of this area?

Thanks!


Here's to feelin' good all the time.

I was at Woodland Basin Nature area last weekend and saw a minnow. Just the one, and I had to hike out quite a ways into some muddy areas just to see that (it was right where the creek forks).

Agree about the trash, though. It's a feeder creek for Lake Ray Hubbard, so anything that goes downstream eventually ends up in our drinking water. I'm currently working on starting a cleanup effort with the City of Garland, and maybe some work on getting better trails cut along the creek out closer to the lake. I'll probably post in here once we start work, but in the mean time, I've been thinking about just walking the banks and picking up what I can. It really is kinda sad to see how fellow fishermen treat our waters sometimes.

Man I hope you didnt drive from Granbury to fish RC. Just because you do not see bait, does not mean there are no fish. When the water is this cold they aren't going to be at the surface very often to see them. RC is hit or miss and the fish are hammered every day so you have to finesse them. I would be looking around the 66 area if I fished there. I caught sandies 2 at a time there in september (I met a friend there to pickup something and decided to fish) RC is the worst creek in DFW IMO. Trashed, hammered daily and lots of small fish are kept out of there and I very rarely fish it.

I split time between Dallas and GB... would have been quite the drive just to fish an over-fished creek! lol

Thanks for the pointers. I will scope out / try other creeks instead.
