What You Need to Know About Fishing Sam Rayburn Reservoir

With over 114,000 acres of water and over 600 miles of shoreline Sam Rayburn Lake offers some of the best fishing and boating activities in Eastern Texas. In 2018 Bassmaster named Sam Rayburn as the best bass fishing lake in the United States. Not surprisingly, the most popular sport fish in Sam Rayburn is largemouth bass, along with catfish, and crappie while white bass and sunfish opportunities are also available. Fish can be found hiding or hunting on weed edges and through the variable contours including submerged humps and channels. With largemouth bass and crappies seeking shallow areas during cooler months and moving to mid-lake structure and brush piles in the hot summer months anglers can change styles and techniques depending on water temperatures and season. With relatively clear water in portions of the reservoir natural looking tackle colors are commonly recommended. Texas Parks and Wildlife
