NOTE: This list may not be all inclusive of all speices present in Cedar Creek Reservoir.
FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Most submerged vegetation is located in the backs of coves in the lower end of the reservoir. Some emergent vegetation is present in the upper end but water is very shallow. Look for submersed islands across the lake from the confluence of Clear and Caney creeks.
ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Largemouth bass angling is best in the lower end of the reservoir where the water is clear. The lake record weighed 14.65 pounds. Catfishes are abundant, with more blues than channel cats in the legal size range. Hybrid striped bass are stocked annually and the lake record is 13.19 pounds.
TIPS & TACTICS
Anglers generally follow the birds to find schools of white bass and hybrids. Action can be good all year but is particularly good in the spring. Look for largemouth bass in the weedy back ends of coves in the lower third of the lake. Use cut shad or live bait for blue catfish.
FISHING REPORT
EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 71 degrees; 0.60 low. Largemouth bass are good working topwater plugs and jerk baits early on creek ledges, main lake points, and near boat docks and retainer walls. Shaky heads, jigs, and crankbaits fished near boat docks, brush piles, and timber are productive later in the day. Hybrids and sand bass are off main lake points and humps with slabs, swimbaits, and live bait. Crappie are excellent with jigs and minnows in brush piles, boat docks, and bridges in 15-28’. Catfish are excellent in 12-25’ with punch bait and cut bait.
