      Large mouth is the only type of bass I am familiar with there. If you are fishing from the bank, I would try up by the Arboretum.

      If fishing from a boat or kayak, ...more try going up White Rock Creek, in the spring especially. You will then have an opportunity to catch bass and crappie. That also gets you into areas not so heavily fished by bank fishermen.

      Tight lines!

      yes, catch and release.

      When it comes to bass, I hope that we ALL are catch and release fishermen! Thank you for that.

      Otherwise, White Rock Lake will be void of bass.

      Tight lines,

      Jesse Chavez, You are right, there were many sandies back then at white rock, but now the population has gone pretty low, I came across a decent school of these ...more I caught like 15 decent ones I let 11 go and only kept 4.

      Thanks for sharing.
    2. Jesse Chavez 0
      we used to catch those big sandies back in the 80s . they were mixed in with the crappie during the winter run in the creek . they were also in that size range . ...more the strange part is it wasnt every winter that some would be caught
