Lake Sam Rayburn

Fishing Report from TPWD (Feb. 22)

GOOD. Water stained; 58-63 degrees; 0.84 feet below pool. Full moon this weekend will draw the fish up shallow with the best bites in the morning and late afternoon. The water is muddy north of the Texas State Highway 147 bridge and clearing south of the bridge. The grass lines are in 6-12 feet grass of water. Male bass are moving up shallow in the grass, but the females are holding in 12 feet of water. Cast soft plastics and rattletraps. Crappie are moving into creeks to spawn with very few on main lake brush piles. Catfish will follow soon. White bass are good up the river and can be fun to fish as they put up a good fight. If there are high winds it will stir the water up, cooling the water in the pockets. Water is being released as work continues on the dam. Report by Captain Lynn Atkinson, Reel Um N Guide Service. Water conditions continue to rise with large rains this past weekend. Murky water continues to head south from the Angelina River inflow of water and major creeks water temperature ranging from 54-59 large populations of fish can be found shallow in the mouths of the creeks secondary points and drains. Rattletrap and chatterbait up shallow, Alabama rig, Damici rig, jig, and crankbait out deep. Report by Captain Hank Harrison, Double H Precision Fishing.
