I managed to hit a couple of creeks Tuesday through Saturday for a few hours:
Threw a 2-3" grub on a 1/8 oz jighead. 5.5' ultralite rod. Managed around 100 fish each day except thursday when the creek had risen close to a foot from rain. If you haven't fished white bass on light tackle, it's an absolute blast. They are powerful swimmers for their size.
Couple of surprises:
The biggest surprise was the habitat in the creek should mean it's filled with smallies. Where were they? By mistake, we should have caught a couple. Very few small largemouth bass were caught. Yet, no smallmouth.
The massive influx of white bass, yellow bass, and crappie has to be destructive to the smallmouth population. The smallie spawning time coincides with massive arrival of thousands of hungry panfish.
