Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report for September 26, 2013
© 2010-13 Randy Phillips, Cedar Creek Lake Outfitters
Water temp. is around 70 to 72 degrees. Bass seem to be in transition mode, with a percent of fish moving from deeper water (15 to 20 ft.) to shallower water (4 ft.). Large 10 inch plastic worms are still working, however smaller finesse worms and swim baits are now working too. Deep diving crank baits and jigs have also been reported to be working. Sometimes in the morning the top water bite is good. Try pop r’s or ricos along the shoreline in about 2 feet of water.
I’ve just started to hear of more crappie being caught during the daylight hours. Fish are caught around shallow brush using minnows. Crappie can still be caught at night under lights however using minnows. More have been caught in the creeks than the main body of the lake due to higher concentrations of baitfish in the creeks. We should see a good fall season for crappie as the average size has increased dramatically over the past couple of years.
Good numbers of bluegill and red ear are being caught more shallow since the water cooled. Crickets and worms are the standard fare.
Quality catfish have been caught this week on chicken livers, nightcrawlers, and cut bait.
Thanks for reading and good fishing!
