Seems you never hear anyone talk of it anymore. How's the lake fishing lately? Anyone been recently?

My bud has a place out in Box Canyon and only fishes the Rio portion of the lake. He either sucks or the fishing is real slow, because 1 day he only caught 1 fish. The next day he caught 3 dinks and it was pretty slow on the action.

I was down there for a few days during Thanksgiving. Did pretty good both days I fished. Weather permitting I'll be hauling the boat down next week too.

Place is dead for the most part. I heard of a couple decent fish caught last week. I think its about to be worse than it was when it was bad !

Fish are probably biting, Amistad locals are not about to come on the internet and spill the beans. They are still pissed at the Elites coming down there.

There's a lot of water, hydrilla, and fish in there. It's only 23 feet low which is better than most of the immediate past. Go fish it!

^^^^This^^^^
And the lake is far enough away with minimal amenities that it gets surprisingly little traffic considering the size of it. Thankfully I'm forced to visit my in-laws once a months or so and it gives me an excuse to haul the boat down and fish.

minimal amenities? The town is 9 miles away, and has a chic-fil-a and a starbucks lol.


I was there Thanksgiving eve, and couldnt resist to put in at BBrush and fish for a couple hours before dark. Throwing a smaller jerkbait, and had 8 fish in 30 minutes. Mostly dinks, but beats the heck out of not catching anything. Oh, and I was never out of sight of the ramp. The boat had been giving me some lip lately, so I stayed within t-motor distance.

Had one about 3.5lbs swim under my bait after I paused it, but she turned. Yes, paltry sizes for the Ammy we all know, but a limit of 3's will win a few tourneys out there as of late.

There are those who love to catch fish, and those who will fish for the chance to catch.

I actually heard this bout the whole country too!! Sucks that 112 guys ruin the fishing and economy growth for few years huh.

No worries Rayburn will be a Dead Sea soon enough along with Toledo since it’s not number 1 anymore
