Richland Chambers Fishing Report for Jan. 12th, 2013

Photo022What a great week on RC as we had a boat on the Lake on Monday, Thursday and Friday and we watched the wonderful rains on Tuesday and Wednesday. The rain had the Creeks flowing for a couple of days and our Lake Level came up about one and a half feet. We’re still well over three feet low, but if we get normal late Winter and Spring rainfall, we should be in good shape as we enter the warmer months. The fish were biting pretty good even with the fresh water and lower temperatures as we had around 40 really BIG White Bass in the ice chest on Monday and Thursday and then came back with a 50 plus fish box on Friday when the temperatures moved into the low 70’s, the bite got more aggressive and even a big fish or two came out to play. (See picture of Bert Thomas of Clifton with a Hybrid Striper caught on Friday). We decided to cancel our Saturday trips this week with a weather forecast of rain and a cold front coming through in the afternoon. It’s good to take an entire weekend off this time of year as we’ll soon be in our peak Springtime mode and we’ll be fishing six days a week and often two trips a day!

As we look ahead to the next couple of weeks, here’s some information for your planning purposes:

*We still have our “Winter Specials” through February. ($250 for a threesome and $325 for a foursome)

*We’ll offer the PARTY BOAT SPECIAL of $80 per fisherman on SATURDAY, JANUARY 26th. At this time we have both boats available and need a minimum of three fishermen in a boat. We’ll schedule a mid morning start time of 10AM to avoid the cool temps in the early AM.

*We have one boat available on the Martin Luther King Holiday on Monday, January 21st. Kids are out of school in most areas so Let’s Go Fishin’!

*This next week, it looks like the weather will be a bit cold thru mid week and then start a gradual warm up into the 50’s by Thursday through Saturday. We have a boat open each of those days and even on Saturday!

*THANKS to everyone who has emailed or called to book their Spring fishing dates. We still have plenty of Weekdays open, but the Saturdays in March through May are just about gone. If you need a Saturday date, better call now.

Here’s hoping we see you soon!
