Yep, next chance near the end of this week. Things should be primed for a big push after another warm week.

That's a tough question, IMO. I just don't know how much clarity they need to move up the creek. Might be a while as it's dark chocolate milk with allot of moving water. With the current I saw, I would think the fish were flushed down to large/deeper sections of Denton Creek to hold up. The lake is probably up almost a foot since the rain started two days ago. The lake level reports in the morning, so we will see tomorrow how far it has come up. There might be some better answers coming, but I like to see the green water moving down (Rather than the heavily stained water).

I just left there. Walked a ways up the creek from 377. Water clarity is horrible. I didn’t get a bite.

If you have a kayak, out boat. Go to murrelll Park, and go out to the main point way out. Whacked then earlier this week, see the Grapevine report. You will do much better there than the creek in the next week.

I will probably do that.. Jigging slabs?

I was using a small Cordell spoon, but a soft plastic would also work. I was almost dead sticking it below the boat, but I did use a 3" pale tail soft plastic casting out, and just lifting the rod and letting it slowly swim back close to the bottom.

I had a 4" soft plastic on a jig head for bass on the deck. I could dead stick that worm and they would hit it, but couldn't get the hook in their mouth. So I scaled down and it worked, and the thumper (Bluetooth speaker) ran them off twice so I turned it off. Murrelll point has very few pieces of structure to get hung up on. There is one stationary piece of wood, and a couple of small brush piles farther west on the hump. But I get hung up more along the drop than any other area on this long point.

Caught 4 today over a couple hours. Really slow fishing. Is this the end of it or will they keep running?

No, full moon on March is typically the big switch. The rain last week slowed things down, and the lake went up 1 ft.
If you go up Denton Creek and want to find sandbass, you will need to go up until you find an actual step. They will be going up until they find a gravel fast moving step. I would say that you will prob have the best success above Henrietta Hole right now. FYI: Largemouth bass have been staging on the main lake as well, they haven't spawned on main lake either. For sandbass you will have to be up near the hole, or above. The normal steps are underwater. I wouldn't waste time below the 377 bridge. Report anything you see, and water clarity.

Caught half a limit this afternoon, 11-12" males. Threw another dozen back that were right at 10". Water clarity is lightly stained but not bad. Still early but with more rain coming I'm guessing when the females do show up it's not going to be for long.

I fished Denton Creek for the first time today. I started by parking on the dirt road running along side of 377. I parked before the huge mudhole, walked up to the power lines and crossed the road and tracks. I walked down the power lines for a short ways. Then blindly went tearing through the green briar until I found the creek. It was difficult to fly fish as there were not many places to get down the bank and just too much water to cover by roll casting alone. I caught 5 small males and then left to try and find a spot further upstream. Luckily I met a local who gave me a pin to a location I would have never have found in a million years.

The area was incredible for fly fishing. I immediately started catching fish and it never stopped. I fished until around 2:30 and they were still biting. I was completely beat though. I ended up catching around 100 white bass on the day.
