Some old-time anglers in Kentucky say the white bass run when the redbud trees bloom in spring. Others say they run when the dogwoods bloom.
Fisheries biologists say don't watch the trees, watch the water temperatures.
"White bass begin their spring spawning runs when the water temperatures reach the low 50s," said Gerry Buynak, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "It is just around the corner."
