The Sabine River above Toledo Bend is known as one of Texas’ premiere white bass spawning runs. East Texas gets a lot more rain than other regions of the state. Rivers like the Sabine, Neches and Trinity are full and healthy.
Most whites were hitting on white and chart clousers, 1/4 oz Road Runners and small rattle traps for the spin rods. We all caught a good number of big females, all in the 2 to 3 pound range. We didn’t slay ’em in numbers but the fishing was steady throughout the weekend with quality fish at the end of our lines.

There were 8 of us total and somehow I failed to capture photos of Robert and Matt. Sorry about that guys. In all, we managed at least 10 to 12 fish each on Saturday. We put in our kayaks right at first sun and fished until dark. We’d paddle to the bends in the river, beach, then wade from the sand bars. Most fish were sitting on bottom after the drop offs.
Sure was nice to get these off at the end of the day.
