March is the month to catch the big girls. Those are the big White Bass females. Look for the Whites to spawn around mid-March in upper Lake Livingston creeks. White Rock, Carolina, Harmon, Nelson and Bedias Creeks are all famous for catching spawning Whites.


Black Bass {largemouth} – The backwater pockets on the north end have been good for Black Bass.  Fish June Bug Creature Baits around wood and rocks here.  Also, Black neon crawfish Texas rigged are good now.

Catfish – With the water moving in the upper river channel, tight line fresh shad on a Carolina rig to load the boat with Blue Cats. Good numbers of big Blue Cats are being caught on fresh shad drift fished on lower lake flats.  Blue Cats are also being caught on popping corks baited with fresh shad fished in the standing dead trees in Harmon Creek.  Big Ops are taking live perch on trotlines in the upper river channel.

Crappie – Crappie fishing has been good with some good numbers of fishing being caught on minnows in the boat houses and in the brush up Kickapoo Creek and White Rock Creeks.

White Bass – Stay on top of current conditions to stack up the Whites now. Throw 1” pearl sassy shad and ¼ oz. Tsunami cocktails in the creeks. Try going up the major creeks as far as you can and start fishing down stream until you find the fish.

Good Luck fishing Lake Livingston!
