Time of day for the late afternoon evening bite? #13920789 03/13/21 01:19 AM

I have always fished the spawning run in the mornings. I found the morning bite where I go usually starts about an hour after sunrise and lasts for about 3 hours of feeding frenzy. I’ve never went out for that later feeding time. What time is everyone finding that later bite?

My experience on area rivers (Lampasas, Llano, and San Gabriel) are like you mentioned the morning blitz and then an evening bite about an hour before sunset to last light. Occasionally late afternoons can be good, say after two or so but the midday thing seems to be a no go.

Well, I’m heading up the Lampasas from Stillhouse tomorrow around 3:00. Going to fish as long as I can and still make it back to the boat ramp before it gets to dark. If I head back just before sunset I should be good.

We went up river about 2 miles above gravel crossing on the Lampasas River. Got up there at 3:00. It was pretty dead. Didn’t see many fish caught. I caught my first fish about 5:00. Fat 16” female. I ended up catching 3 White Bas at my normal fishing area. We left about 30 minutes to sunset and trolled on the way back. My granddaughter caught 5. My daughter caught 4. I ended up catching 3 more for a total of 6. Not the balls to the wall action I’m used to in this area, this time of year. I’ll be heading back up there soon....but in the morning.
I couldn’t believe the amount of people taking there boats father up river. Never seen that before. I’ve seen kayaks heading up river and I can understand that. But these bigger boats were just constantly disturbing the prime fishing areas. They would go up just to turn around to go back. You don’t have to fish out of your boat. Do like the most of us and beach your boat and fish these areas from your feet. You can reach all the prime spots on your feet. It’s more of a creek than a river at that point.
