FAIR. Water lightly stained; 61 degrees. Hybrid Striper fishing is slow on main lake humps. White bass are good in shallow areas near creeks and inlets. Largemouth bass are fair in creeks and grassy shorelines with square billed crankbaits, jerk baits, plastic creatures, and spinners. Catfish are good with live and cut bait throughout the lake.

Richland Chambers is an excellent choice for anglers seeking catfishes, crappie, white bass or hybrid stripers. Angling for largemouth bass can be very good where anglers can find vegetation and clear water; however, these areas are somewhat limited in size compared to the lake surface. Many anglers set jug lines for catfishes and go after schooling white bass and hybrids while waiting for jug line action. Richland Chambers produces abundant crappie (both black and white) and may be area's the most consistent fishery for these fishes.

Fishing Cover/Structure
Native pondweeds are abundant in Big Cedar Creek and along the south bank of the Chambers Creek arm. Hydrilla is scattered along the south bank of the Richland Creek arm from Midway Marina west to the railroad trestle and from 7L ramp south to Pin Oak Creek. The old Trinity River levee forms a crescent-shaped underwater structure between the confluence of the Richland and Chambers creek arms and the dam.

Tips & Tactics
Largemouth bass anglers should look for fish congregated around underwater structure where they can be caught with jigging spoons and deep-diving crankbaits. Crappie anglers will have success with jigs or minnows near bridge crossings and in the abundant timber in the upper Richland and Chambers creek arms. Catfishes are everywhere; cut bait, stink bait, chicken livers, and worms are all productive. White bass and hybrid stripers are active from the 287 bridge to the dam. Use a graph recorder to find schools of shad or follow the birds to find schooling activity. Heavy jigs or slabs work well when fish are deep.

I have been out here at our camp for 5 days. Pretty typical RC. Enough bites to keep you interested but not just killing it. There are some good ones but numbers aren't great.

Chatterbaits and spinnerbaits in grass and flukes when the wind isn't blowing.

If you come out here, it is a grind. What's new?
