Current Fishing Report for Sam Rayburn Reservoir

Sam Rayburn Reservoir Fishing Report
January 13, 2015

It's tournament season again and things kick into gear this weekend with Skeeter Bass Champs holding it's first tournament of the 2015 season Saturday, January 17th with headquarters at the Pavilion near the dam on Rayburn.

The lake level is basically full at 164 feet. There is a shallow bite on Bill Lewis's famous Rat-L-Traps catching bass in depths of 1 to 8 feet as well s Stanley Vibrashaft spinnerbaits worked in grass in similar depths. Look for the grass (hydrilla) and there's a decent amount of grass currently. Jerkbaits and weightless soft plastics will also be a factor in Saturday's tournament. With water temperatures in the upper 40s, there is also a deep bite with deep diving crankbaits(DD22s), jigs and Carolina rigs in depths of 15 to 30 feet. Drop shot, and jigging spoons are also catching fish.
