Vegetation is sparse on Lk Sam Rayburn. Fish are more active during the fall, winter and spring months due to the cooler weather. Fish are active much longer during daylight hours and are normally found in shallow water early morning and late afternoon For active fish, spinner baits and crank baits are most fisherman's choice. A variety of watermelon green plastic worms seems to work well during the hotter months fished in grass. Early morning top water baits are just about anything that floats. Normally Poppers, Prop Baits, Flukes, or just about any Stick Bait.

Channel catfish are good year-round, Use cut shad or smelly bait.
