Richland Chambers Fishing Report
- Sep 20, 2023
- FAIR. Water clear; 83-88 degrees; 2.40 feet below pool. Some much needed rain dropped nearly two inches of rain. The air temperatures were in the 70s and 80s and this lowered the water temperature to the mid to low 80s. Water clarity is good. The most consistent bite continues to be hybrid stripers and eater size blue and channel catfish. Hybrid striper guides are using live gizzard shad to catch fish off humps near the 309 flats. Water depths vary but most fish are coming from 25 feet of water. Eater size blue and channel catfish are very good and can be caught on shad or Danny King’s Punch Bait in the timber off the Richland Creek Channel in 25-30 feet of water. The early morning bite has been good and the fish are often suspended at various depths. No reports from the white bass, crappie or largemouth bass anglers. Report by Royce Simmons, Gone Fishin' Guide Service.
