Richland Chambers Lake Fishing Reports


2014 Aug 10 - FISHING REPORT

Last week's Fishing Report told of the "Tough Conditions and Slow Bite" we'd been having and gave this week's Customers the chance to cancel or reschedule their trips. Well.....no one canceled and I fished six trips and Adam fished four trips from Monday thru Saturday! What a GREAT Week it turned out to be with fish caught EVERY TRIP and also EVERY TRIP having Kids on board! Some days we only had a 20 or 25 fish box of Keepers, but other days like Wednesday and Saturday, we had over 75 fish to clean! We're still having to fish hard and burn a lot of gas to finds the fish, but even the tough days are fun when you have smaller Kid's shouting about their "BIG FISH, or Teens talking a little trash and telling Granddad that he needs to FISH HARDER!
On Friday and Saturday, we started the day with a bit of Top Water action and some small Hybrid Stripers really bending our rods. Most days, we're catching our fish on Slabs and small Crappie Jigs tied about a foot above the Slab. It's a hoot to see a 7 year old with two fish on the rod at the same time! The catches of the week came yesterday with 6 year old Kenli Oliver catching both a 5 lb. Hybrid Striper and a 6 lb. Largemouth. She made her Papa promise to get her a replica of her Largemouth Bass so she could "Put It On The Wall"!
It's almost time for School to start, so there's little time to get the Kids on the Lake! We have a few August days with a boat open and still have a boat open on Monday, September 1st (Labor Day).
Give us a call and Let's Go Fishin'!

2014 Aug 03 - FISHING REPORT

Adam and I have always tried to "Tell It Like It Is" in regard to the fishing on Richland Chambers! The majority of the time we have days where we fill the ice chest, everyone catches lots of fish and normally it's more fish than our customers have ever caught before.  (Picture above of 85 year old Bea and her Daughter who had 24 Keepers on a trip this week. One of their BEST DAYS ever and one of our slowest!) If you've read our recent Fishing Reports, you noticed that the White Bass fishing has been a little tough for the past couple of weeks. This week the trend has continued.
We've had a boat out everyday this past week and the average catch was around 20 to 25 fish. As an example we had both boats reserved by Families with eight fishermen (Kids and Adults) on two trips this week. We fished hard, everyone caught fish, but we had only 51 Keepers and 42 Keepers respectively on the two trips. This was great with one Family as they had seldom caught that many fish, but it was a little disappointing for the other Family as they've fished with us often and are used to 100 fish days! However, on both trips, we had LOTS OF FUN and that's the important thing!
Most of the mornings we've had a bit of White Bass Top Water Schooling action off the 309 Flats and then we're moving around the Lake to all the typical Summer Spots (Pelican Island, Old Hwy 287 Roadbed and the South Shoreline) to look for fish. Keep a Top Water Bait and a Slab handy as you never know when you'll pull up on a school of feeding fish!
We inform our customers when the fishing is slow and if they want to cancel or reschedule, we have no problem doing so. All we ask is that they let us know as far in advance as possible. If customers decide to cancel/reschedule and give us a little notice, we might be able to fill the opening.
We wish we knew when the fishing is going to improve, but our Crystal Ball is a little foggy. It may be tomorrow, this week or next week. We go through periods like this every Summer and always hope the fishing gets better quickly! The one thing we do know for sure is that "You'll always have FUN with Gone Fishin' Guide Service!"
Here's hoping we get to see you soon and do some Catchin'!

2014 July 13 - FISHING REPORT

Adam and I had a very enjoyable week on Richland Chambers as the fishing continued to be fair to good everyday and even VERY GOOD on a couple of days!  New Customers and Repeat Customers ( and now Friends) kept us on the Lake for ten  (10) trips this week! As often happens in the Summer, we are having to make a long boat ride up the two Major Creek Arms of the Lake to find the White Bass. We're not sure why this happens but the Main Lake locations that have held fish all Spring are no longer full of fish. So some days we're making a 20 mile plus round trip to get our box of White Bass. On Adam's Wednesday trip with the Breards from DFW, they limited out early on White Bass, and then tried the Hybrid Stripers. As you can see from the picture, they were successful! It's odd that the Hybrid Striper bite is often very good in the hottest two months of the year!!! All our fish continue to come on RSR Silver or Chartruse Slabs (www.rsrlures.com). The Summer Top Water bite just hasn't fully kicked in gear yet, but it's early in the Summer!
Our calendar is completely full for July, but we have LOTS OF WEEKDAY OPENINGS IN AUGUST, and even a couple of  August Saturdays with a boat open. Also, our Labor Day Weekend still remains open at this time. Summer goes by fast and if you want to get the Kids, Grandkids, Friends and Family on the Lake, just give us a call and We'll Go Fishin'!
Hope to see you soon!
