Sandies in walnut creek mansfield - 04/21/21 04:53 AM

My daughter lives near walnut Creek in mansfield. There is now a concrete path that runs along Walnut Creek from Oliver nature park to highway 360. Access is great for kids. My family, grandkids and all the rest Caught 45-50 in one little hole along the creek near McCampbell Rd. Fishing was easy, the walk was easy, even the three year old had a blast. They were smallish thru them all back but had a good time.

Checked it out, walked about four miles total. Parked on saddle horn and walked left towards 360. Walked all the way to the end of the paved trail at the 360 access road. Never found any access point to the creek. Walked back to saddle horn and went right on the path. Found two access points and fished off some flat rocks but the water was really shallow and no fish present. Walked all the way to the nature park but water was just a trickle up there. No places I walked down were really safe for little kids. I wonder if we missed something? Well at least we got a good walk in.

You are either all in, or you are all out! After doing similar, I couldn't help but think he either fished in the ponds, or conditions were much different when he went? I found a couple of spots to get to the water and picked up two sandbass and a crappie. Nothing I fished was suitable for kids.

We went out a few weeks ago and had a great time! It was a little thick in some places hit maybe 3 spots before we got into them. Ended up catching 58 in total fun 3 hours of action! [Linked Image]
