White Bass Fishing on the Spring River

Recommended Posts

Has any one been fishing for whites on the Spring River?  I went on March 4 but didn't have any luck.  I was wondering if anyone else had tried.  The water temp was 50 degrees on March 4 but the water was very muddy.  It was cleaner than the Neosho but still muddy.  I graphed a lot of fish but couldn't get any to bite.

My uncle went down Friday and Saturday. He didn't have any luck. I think maybe he caught 6 or 7 between both days. Said there were a ton of boats but no one was catching much. That's all I know. Good luck!

I went down to 10C on Saturday just to check it out since it was somewhat rainy and I had nothing to do. Didn't see a soul down there and the water was coming up. I know it is running high now from all the rain. I would still give it a week or two before it all cuts loose.

Rumer has it even with the high water some guys are hitting them in the clearer feeder creeks up the river. Get into some of that and you might do alright! It still hasn't completely busted loose yet from what I am seeing.

Quick update from what I am seeing. I went down there yesterday and the water is still up and muddy. Plenty of rigs at the ramps (Twin & 10C) but I didn't see any bags of whites. Couple people I talked with said they had caught a couple here and there, but nothing to brag about. I know some guys are catching them, but just not in huge numbers. Always a good indicator is the amount of cleaned fish I see at the ramp or smell at the ramps and I didn't see many cleaned. Lots of people down trying to snag a spoonie right now as well. Of course my day wouldn't be complete without seeing the GRDA out and about patrolling the waters too.

It has begun. I am starting to see my FB feeds blow up from reports. No reports of a lot caught, but saw a couple reports last night that makes me think it starting to come alive! One of the reports was of whites getting the smack down just up from Twin and the other was a bank report below 10C.
