White bass
« on: March 30, 2019, 09:48:03 am »

I have a football player who wants to know if the white bass are running up the White River and where the best spots are to bank fish.

Any idea or suggestions?

I heard they are. I have also seen some folks saning for crawdads. I would try blue springs and twin bridges.

I took a drive by yesterday to the usual haunts ... disturbingly quiet. No one out fishing, no boats on the water, no activity at all. Drove over twin bridges, a few people fishing, but not nearly enough to say the run is on. With the heavy rains we've had in the past week or two the water is really off, both in color and temp - river temps have dropped back into the upper 40s in most places, and there's a heavy stain to the water ... which, after this mornings T-storms, will again be pure mud - that's not the right ingredients for success.

I have a couple spots for the guys if you still need them. I don't guarantee success, but they've produced more times than not when the run is on - a couple times to the tune of a foul tempered striper or two - and are generally easy to walk to. I won't describe how to get to them here, as the directions are lengthy - PM me.

It's almost there--walleye have been decent in the white and I've seen some nice stripers caught on the troll.....but the whites are not quite there in large numbers yet. Water is nasty after these rains...it will get going next week if it warms up nicely and doesn't flood

You're around little rock?

Rivers are going to be up pretty bad the next few days. I'll check a couple of spots this coming week and get back to you if they're good

Checked one spot earlier. Not yet.

Hopefully sometime this week they'll start to show up and get busy.

Well that stinks but I can't blame them at all if people can't be decent enough to clean up after themselves. That was an outstanding spot to put in with a small boat and troll for white bass. I've also caught some very large hybrid there too.

Dark, you can put a boat in now at twin bridges, ya know ... although the ramp can be chaos at times ... also beaver shores is just down river a small distance.
A lot of my youth was spent at dollar hole. Lots of brain cells fell victim to spring break camping there.
We always policed ourselves and picked up around, whether it was ours or not. It's a shame others didn't appreciate the opportunity there.

I may go to Habberton and sniff around if the water will clear a little more. You want em, Twist, if I run into some big females?

Twin Bridges was insanely packed last Saturday. We went down stream a bit and parked on the side of the road near Habberton. Dragged kayaks to the water from there. Caught a few bass and some decent crappie by those bluffs downstream of Twin Bridges.

Kayaks are brave (or suicidal) in that area when the run is in mania mode - boats running full out up and down, passing each other - particularly weekends. Hope you guys stay safe.

From Neils Bluff to Twin Bridges, it good fishing this time of the year - can't go wrong. Twin Bridges loading ramp gets crazy - that's for sure. I like to unload at the Beav ramp and go from there.

Ah, the white bass run near Twin Bridges. Brings back memories.

I had some spots to trek to on foot. Have had some memorable outings out there in April.

I remember one trip catching 87 white bass one afternoon down there. Upstream from Twin Bridges, park and walk through some pastures.

There was no limit at the time on Beaver Lake.

Have had some good times on the Maumelle River in central Ark. There is a limit there I believe.

Used to park at dusk and walk through the woods back there and fish at night. Caught 47 one evening from about 8-11pm.

You gotta love white bass. There is nothing subtle about it. When they hit your lure, it's like a freight train.

I've heard some great things about the Bull Shoals run, like the fingers that stretch into Arkansas. I've heard the area between the Beaver Dam and Bull Shoals lake can be great.
