White Rock Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- In the winter time the crappie school up in the creek North of the lake in huge numbers following the shad. Carey Thorn from TexasOklahomaFishingGuide.com guides there in the dead of winter and catches limits from the bank! We used him last year as guide and highly recommend him. I took my son with me who has never caught a crappie or used a spinning rod, for that matter. We left with 38 slab crappie to 16 inches. Crazy thing was, Carey was targeting them in 3 ft of water in 39 degree weather! We put on polarized glasses and could actually see them.
Other than that, use 4-6 pound mono line. Black/Chart jigs with crappie nibbles are the best thing to use there. Of course the old live minnow trick will do fine, but you will be able to cover more water with jigs is what we learned. Apparently Carey does not start to guide this creek till around Thanksgiving. He said when the water hits about 50 or below, they start the migration up the creek. The colder the better.
A rule people dont really know about this water is, you cant wade in it. Make sure you have a fishing license due to the game wardens patrol the woods waiting for poachers!
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.

- I caught a good-sized channel catfish in White Rock Creek this morning, several hundred yards north of Mockingbird Lane, but well before the big bend, while fishing along a bunch of fallen timber on the west bank. I saw quite a few large catfish up there, but was trying to catch crappie.

White Rock Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
