Lake Sam Rayburn Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 28)

GOOD. Water stained; 73 degrees; 3.79’ low. Largemouth bass continue to be good in shallow water with structure like vegetation, creeks, and timber. Fish topwater, spinners, and crankbait. White bass are fair, still looking deep and moving a bit further out towards mid-lake. Crappie are good on jigs staying in close proximity to their structure. Catfish are good on live and stinkbait.
