    Default Lewisville Lake newbie

    I'm looking for some tips on Lewisville Lake on where to start/best techniques here. I just moved down the street from Little elm Creek and found a little spot I can access it from. Looks like there's a 12' Creek channel that flows from the main lake with a very large 2-3' flat right next to it.

    I was wondering if the fish would be moving up into shallower water of the creek about this time? Or would vertical fishing the bridge pilings be most productive in this lake? Not much crappie fishing experience, but I do very well "vertical casting" bridge pilings usually on Ray Roberts. Just don't have a clue where to go this time of year or in general on Lewisville. TIA!

    Also looking for a fishing partner in the North Dallas area to learn some stuff from. I always feel like I'm taking a wild guess at where to find fish and what to use. I usually don't have luck except from one spot on one lake. It's currently closed due to flooding, so the constant skunk is getting frustrating.

    I fish from a kayak (don't own a boat) so I'm limited to a smaller radius from where I launch vs boaters. It's not as easy to cover water so educated guesses on where to start in certain conditions would help tremendously.

    sometimes the bridges there are quite productive . its been years since I hit that lake but to be sure its loaded with slabs .
    fish over 2 lbs are not rare there according to the fisheries dept. last time I chatted with them .
    and lots of blacknose in there as well .
    braid might be something you consider there as it has a good population of large striped fish too .fyi
    I am pretty sure hickory creek has a real good run of spring fish if I remember right .
    luck to ya and show us dem fisheez

    Thanks! Unfortunately my fishing trip on this beautiful morning got the kybosh due to the Corona virus and kids staying home today. Soon though. Very soon. In the meantime I'll share a couple pictures of some RayBob slabs I've enjoyed hahaName:  IMG_20191108_134632_MP-01.jpg

    The Eldorado Pkwy bridge by the big park is know to hold some fish. Little Elm Creek gets plenty of spawners. Put in at Fish Trap. Some good ponds right there too. Doe Branch is a good creek even up above 380. The little creek with the footbridge near the Little Elm Landfill can be good too

    Thanks! Fishtrap has been closed due to flooding for the past week or two. I know exactly where you're talking about though. I'm hoping I can get a day off when it's not blowing 20mph so I can paddle the creek bed/creek looking for fish. I definitely wanna check out the Little elm park bridge when the wind dies down too.
