Richland Chambers Lake

Richland Chambers Lake - 12/28/19 12:54 AM

I know the cats and blues are on a good bite this time of year up the richland arm in the flooded timbers. Can anyone provide me with any specific info on places to start looking? I have not been on the lake in several years and I am wanting to take my 82 yo dad out and get him on some cats. Thank you in advance for any info!!!

We fished three days this past week and had fair action each outing. Main problem was fog on Monday & Thursday which kept us from making the 10 mile trip thru the timber, and on Friday a slick lake with no breeze whatsoever. Bite was really soft and difficult for most folks to get a good hookset. Still, we had a nice box of fish and several fish in the 10 lb. range. All caught on DK's Punch Bait on a # 4 Treble Hook fished on the bottom in 20'-25' FOW. If you can get up the Richland Arm early AM and see where the Birds are roosting, you're in business. We've been in the Crab Creek area of the Lake for the past month and have had limits or near limits most trips. If you can get a good breezy and cloudy day, the action is very good!

I have always had my own boat so I have not ever hired Royce or Adam but I like to fish Richland Chambers and they have always been more than willing to share info to help fellow fisherman enjoy the great outdoors. Royce, thanks again for emailing me info for my upcoming trip. Planning to take my 82 y/o father out blue cat fishing, his favorite thing!!!

See if you can find someone selling fresh shad.

I also have a boat and still pay for guided trips. you and your dad will have a better chance of success and will learn along the way.

i've done trips with Royce who is great and also would suggest Lot-a-BS guide service for drifting for big cats and also for crappie.
