The line-side bite this week has been good. The bite has really picked up this week and the line-sides are finally starting to feed. The water temperature is 59 degrees. There are two different bites going on right now.
The first bite — and most are viewing it as the main bite — is up north. There is a very good bite from the Boys Club all the way north to Sweetwater.
The hybrid and white bass bites are busting topwater and will eat almost anything when they are up and in this kind of feeding frenzy. My bait of choice is a popping cork, along with a white fluke followed by a roster tail.
The secondary bite is from Kellogg’s Creek to Clear Creek. These fish are about 90% hybrids and are being caught right over the river channel. Live bait is working best: shad, thread fin, shiners and trout.
Look for these fish in the bends of the river channel. The seagulls are starting to show up and will be a big up later into December. December is a challenging month for finding the right techniques. But it is also one of those months where you can catch a trophy along with a cooler full of smaller fish.
Trolling has been hit and miss, but it should be in full swing by mid-December. I pull nothing but a Mack Farr four-arm umbrella.
