The crappie bite is heating up right along with the temperatures on Cedar Creek Reservoir, where angler Ferris Bavousett spent the morning with guide Chuck Rollins of bringing in a mess of fish.

“We had a great time out there this morning,” Bavousett said. “The crappie are still underneath the docks in 7 to 10 feet of water. We just shot the docks with a solid chartreuse grub. They loved it.”


The anglers kept almost 50 fish for a fish fry, and along with the crappie, caught hybrid stripers and sand bass.

“None of the hybrids were big enough to keep, but we did catch a 3-pound sand bass,” Bavousett said. “It was just a really good day.”

The water temperature on Cedar Creek is in the upper 70s, according to TPWD.
