Fishing is great at Lake Ray Roberts! Recently, rain in the watershed has pushed the lake level to about a foot over normal level. Therefore, there is a small release of water from the lake. Water temperature has fallen to the 60s and all species of fishing is good. Thanks to a very successful spawn this year, I believe we have more fish and baitfish than we have had in many years. We should have excellent fishing for the next few years, barring any unusual events by Mother Nature. White Bass are plentiful and can be caught on slabs jigged on the bottom on points and humps in 20 to 40 feet of water. Crappie fishing is good for the first time in a while. They are being caught on minnows and jigs on the Corps of Engineers brush piles in 15-30 feet of water. You can also catch them in standing timber in the same depth water. Not only is the number of Crappie good, the average size is better than it has been in years. Largemouth Bass are cooperating! They are being caught on a variety of lures fished along the shore in 2-6 feet of water. Good numbers are coming from the main lake as well as in the creeks. Crank baits and spinnerbaits fished in shallow water are a couple of the most productive choices this time of year. Having been a full time fishing guide on the lake for 26 years, I can say that the overall fishing is better than it has been in several years!

I have been running trotlines the past few months and something has changed. The catfish are definitely moving to deeper waters. The water is down and it\'s getting hot, and then come the gar and carp. I have been catching plenty of blue cats and only a couple of channel cat.

"Jan 1st 2010 Fishing Report. Another year is upon us. Waiting for this cold weather to get out of here. Spring will be here before we know it. I haven't been on the lake much the past few weeks with the holidays and our vacation. Just got back from a cruise with family and friends. We had a great time. It will be interesting this spring to see what kind of weights are brought in to the scales, now that there are tournaments on the lake again. Last fall folks struggled to find the fish. I expect to see some big bags brought in this spring. It wouldn't suprise me to see a share lunker brought in as well this spring.

Water Temperature: 43
"February 10, 2009 by Reelin Ray Roberts Guide Service Lake Ray Roberts Fishing Report, Lake Ray Roberts is 2.38 feet over normal level and water is being released at 1388 cfs. Water temperature is 42 to 43 degrees and stained in most areas of the lake. White bass fishing is slow on Lake Ray Roberts. It takes a lot of looking to get a bite with most of the lake below 43 degrees. The snow predicted tomorrow will only make for colder water temperatures. Ray Roberts sand bass are hard to catch when water temperature gets below 43 degrees. For the rest of reelin Ray Roberts Fishing report go to http://www.reelinrayroberts.com/fishingreport.html"

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Ray Roberts Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Try fishing the flats after the water warms up a little more. Catfish are a little sluggish in this colder water.
View Tip Location on Map
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
