Dogwoods blooming = White bass run....?

Recommended Posts

So the dogwoods are blooming (trees with white flowers right?) but I haven't had much luck with whites in any of my usual white bass "spots". And most guys I know who's fishing for them aren't doing very good either. Is it too early still?

What truly makes the white bass run up the rivers/creeks? Is it water temp, amount of daylight, water flow? Are they just as confused as we are? lol.

I've also heard when the dogwoods are in bloom, the bass are on the beds. Not true this year either with the crazy warm winter giving things an early start.

I know down at LOZ the redbuds bloom before the dogwoods.  The crab apples, pears, and plum trees are usually the first to bloom followed by the redbuds and last the dogwoods.  Not saying things won't be a little earlier, but I believe too early for dogwoods.  Always heard the crappie are spawning when the dogwoods are blooming.

Regardless of early warm spells the Whites never show up in the creeks on LO until April, usually during a high water event.  And only if the lake level is at or above 657.5

Table rock area Whites typically proceed ours by about 2 weeks.  

Wrench,  How do you think the Whites are effected by dirty water on TR (James)?

Thx

Bobby
