Fishing Tips for Sam Rayburn

on January 30th

Black bass have been biting well lately on dark green/blue flake soft plastics. Both white bass and crappies are fair on minnows but crappies will also hit blue tube jigs and white bass will attack Li’l Fishies. Sunfish are fair on worms. Shrimp and worms work well for catfish which are biting well. The water is slightly colored, 55-58 degrees, and about 11’ low. Good luck fishing!

Lately the bass have been biting well on spinners and crankbaits. The stripers are so slow they are not worth fishing for at the moment. The crappies have been good near fallen trees on minnows. The yellow catfish are also really slow. The other catfish species are good on shrimp and stinkbait after dark. The water temp is 96-72 degrees and the water clarity is muddy. Good luck fishing!
