This year’s white bass run could slow to a trickle for Canyon Lake anglers.

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) predicts a “hit-or-miss” season this spring in Central Texas, the Hill Country and South Texas due to low water levels and low flows in reservoirs and rivers.

These conditions could impact the timing and size of the white bass run, TPWD biologists said in a statement. Anglers should check water levels and river flows before heading to their favorite location.

Public access points for this year’s run include the Guadalupe River above Canyon Lake. White bass can be targeted from the bank, motorized boat or paddle craft.

Each spring, white bass run upstream from reservoirs into rivers and creeks to spawn, creating prime fishing opportunities for new and seasoned anglers, TPWD said.

White bass also are known as sand bass, a popular freshwater species preferred by Texas anglers for both sport fishing and the dinner table.
