April 2016 Lake Ray Roberts Fishing Report

on April 29th

Fishing at Ray Roberts Lake has been very good for weeks and is now even better. Crappie are showing up on brush piles in 15-20 feet of water. They are hitting minnows and small jigs fished over the top of the brush. There are a lot of small fish but also good numbers in the 12-15" range. White Bass fishing, as is most of the time is great. We have been catching limits of large fish. Last year I believe there was one of the most successful spawns on the lake that there has been in many years. Therefore, there are numerous small fish in the lake. At times we catch a few hundred of the small fish while putting together limits of the larger fish. Most of our fish have been caught on slabs fished on the bottom in 20-30 feet of water. However, fish are showing up now in shallow water on main lake points and will be easy to catch on many different small lures. Largemouth Bass can be found in 2-10 feet of water on points. They will hit topwater lures early in the day. By mid morning switch to Texas or Carolina rigged soft plastics fished in and around the flooded brush and willows.

Fishing Tips for Ray Roberts

Smithwick Suspending Rogues in Tiger Roan and Clown colors fished near rocky main lake points are the key to catching black bass right now. Crappies are slow but if you still want to fish for them they can be found about 25 feet deep near points. White bass can be caught in good numbers on slabs in 35 feet of water. You can tell a good area to fish by looking for sea gulls. If they are swooping at the water it’s probably a good idea to fish there. The water is clear, 43-47 degrees, and about 5' low’. Good luck fishing!

Fishing Tips for Ray Roberts Lake

on November 22nd

If you want to catch largemouth bass you should try fishing with XCalibur One Knockers in Foxy Shad and watermelon/red and YUM Dingers fished weightless around weeds in coves. The crappies have been slow lately. The few fish that are being caught are being caught in 25 feet of water near brush piles. The white bass have been the complete opposite of the crappies because they are biting in really good numbers near main lake bait schools. If you don’t know how to find them you should look for seagulls flocks over the main lake because they should be feeding on baitfish. The water is clear, 64-69 degrees, and about 5 feet below pool. Good luck fishing!
