Hey all,
new to the forum and was wanting any help in locating the white bass on Stockton lake. I usually put in at Greenfield access, so is this a good area or do i need to look elsewhere. Thanks for the info

Huckfinn, Thanks for the info. I usually fish Grand lake OK, and the spring river arm for the spring white bass run but this year i am wanting to work more of the missouri lakes. the oklahoma run usually starts around the end of FEB or the first of March, so was wanting to know if that is close to the same on stockton. Thanks again.

Mini rattle trap is great for sure..but Here in about 5 degrees more water temp....go up into some bigger coves or pockets or up creek arms...this is the time to go as far as i am concerned. It is quite amazing action.

I agree woth mrgungho. I fish the cc area a lot in the spring and usually start hitting the whites beginning during the first week of March. It is usually really good by the middle or end of March depending on weather. Welcome to the forum. I will look forward to your fishing reports!

Stockton and Pomme de terre being smaller bodies of water and more north tend to have a later migration than Bull Shoals and Table Rock. I have fished all ends of the lake and it is usually well into March before they show up for me and then only if we have rain with a good runoff.

On a side note I hear from some Forsythians that Slough Hollow is already getting some action

I'm thinking that would be bankbeaters because the lake is 7' down. There would be some tricky shoals trying to get up there.

I have caught whites up at the 160 bridge on turnback as early as late Jan before. But I agree it starts getting real good around the first of March and I think cc is a good place to start.

Good morning everybody, Thanks for all the replies. now i have at least a place to start and it looks like i need to start scouting some areas about now. i'm sure the water temp needs to come up a little still but it shouldn't be long.
Again thanks everybody for the ideas and help
