Fished mid-lake. Water temp from 64-68 from 3 ft clarity to stained depending on how far back in the creeks we went. All fish caught were in the back 1/3 of Creek arms. Marked bait balls in the middle 1/3 to the back of the creeks at 20-10ft. Narrow arms produced the best bite. Wide flats were innafective. Caught 16 fish from 6.5# to dinks. A couple of 4's and a few 3's. Bright sky's with a southern variable wind. Best pattern was a jig bite tight to wind blown vertical timber on the shady side of the stump in 4-8 ft of water. Fish were holding close to the bottom to middle of the timber. Couldn't get the same fish to hit a square bill but would hit a jig. Couple on moving baits working grass lines near a channel drop-off. When we saw an active fish they would smoke a frog or a spook. Not a single fish caught close to the bank. Good luck and tight lines.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways with a fishing rod in one hand, 10# LMB in the other, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and yelling "Wow! What a Ride!

Here is some interesting information about fishing Rayburn from Will Kirkpatrick. Kirkpatrick has significant credentials and is very interesting to fish with on Sam Rayburn. Lots of tackle information and an interesting statement regarding delayed mortality after fish release.
