Richland Chambers Reservior Guide Steve Schmidt Lake Report: Tuesday, June 19, 2001 Water Color: Stained Depth: Normal Pool Water Temp: 78 to 80 Forecast: Sunny high of 90 winds 2 to 10 mph Boat Ramp: Oak Cove Marina Fishing Report: Tuesday, June 19, 2001 (dated fished June 15,16,17 2001) Black Bass: The early morning bite has been on top water buzzbait from about 6:00 am to 7:30 am. I was throwing a white buzzbait, and a S.O.B Pop-R white with black bottom and also Crome with blue. I was working the flooded grass and lay down in the shaded pockets. I suggest you don’t work this pattern to long. As the sun started to heat up I headed to some of the boat docks on the lake and bulkheads. You will find more docks on the south end of the lake on the Richland creek side. I was flipping around all the docks and ladder and right on the bulkhead. Pay close attention to the drop offs from the docks into the creek you will find these fish in the 10 to 15 ft water. My choice of bait here is the Ringtail Watermelon worms and Red Shad. Note all of these baits are 4 in .I was using 12 to 15lb P-line with a 5/16 bullet weight. Then we went out on the main lake and fished the pipeline and some of the cattle hump. Carolina-Rig here use still used the same colors. I was using a 36 in leader on my Carolina-Rig. Here are some GPS point for this location: N 31° 57’ 15” W 096° 18’ 42” N 31° 57’12” W 096° 18’36” These are two location that are pretty close, there are several cattle humps in this area. The first set of points will put you on the pipe line the other will put you on one of the many humps. I also was using Bangs Garlic & and the pure Bang. Always if you can use some kind of fish attracted if you can because it really works.
