December 13, 2012 – Walnut Creek

Water temps 52 degrees.  I caught a few bass and white bass early and decided to paddle up the creek to see what was there.  Most of the water was 6 – 10 feet deep.  I did find two spots where the water was 12 feet at one spot and 14 feet in another.  I didn’t see any fish jumping or chasing shad.

I paddled all the way to 360, but I could not go under the bridge due to low water.  I turned around and went back to a spot that normally holds white bass.  I fished it for awhile and caught around eight.

Started to head towards the car and threw the road runner next to a few stumps.  A big ol bass was sitting there and grabbed it.  Good day overall.

Got to the creek at 11am.  Water temps at 54 degrees.  Not too cold and the wind was ok.  The only fish I caught today were white bass.  Didn’t find a bass or crappie anywhere.  I didn’t see any boats, yaks, or bank fisherman today, but there was a red truck sitting at the place where I launched when I got back.   It had a Hobie sticker on the back window, so I guess it was another yak.

The white bass were chasing minnows, but I couldn’t get them to hit my road runner, crank bait, or rattle trap.  I moved to another spot and caught a few casting out the road runner.  I took a video of one of the catches, but I’ll have to figure out how to get it posted somewhere.

S – L – O -W

Water temps were at 58 degrees. Very low winds in the creek. No fish found at any of my normal spots.  Stumps and brush didn’t turn up any fish.  Caught three bass and one white bass the whole day.

I noticed the wind was low as I was headed back to my car, so I went for a paddle across the lake.  I trolled the white crankbait, but didn’t catch anything.  Of course the wind changed directions when I got to the other side, so I had to paddle back against the wind.
