The white bass stage getting ready for their run upriver near Sweeney Switch at the mouth of the river early around Dec. and Jan.
There are a lot of whites that start early and are already up at the shallows by that time as well, especially if the weather has been mild.
You can do well during those times in both locations mentioned, and it's not uncommon to bring in limits just about anywhere along the miles and miles of river, if you just hunt for them.
Access is limited, and finding a private ramp near the upper end of the lake is going to be your only chance unless you know someone in a private subdivision that has a ramp.
Up river you are limited to the ramp at hwy 59 under the bridge or the airport road ramp between George West and Three Rivers, both free.
