Lake Sam Rayburn Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 8)

FAIR. Water stained; 82 degrees; 0.97’ low. Largemouth bass are fair with all success coming early, late, and now at night. Fishing lights have helped attract some bass. The best habitat is still vegetation edges with topwater, worms, and jigs. White bass have slowed with minnows seeking depth. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs vertically fishing thick vegetation, and among structures less than 20 feet deep. Catfish are good on live and stinkbait.
