Lake Ray Hubbard Fishing Guide Report
It is fall time and we have had a lot of rain in the month of October. It effected the fishing some. If I am not mistaking we had over 14 inches of rain for the month. Lake Ray Hubbard was 3.5 ft low in September and now is about .5 feet high. The white bass scattered and when you would find them they would move fast. This time of year electronics are very vital. I use a Hummingbird Helix 12 Mega and it works very well. It is very effective in scanning areas to locate fish or decide that they are not there. Also the fronts that are moving in will start a them feeding. White bass and Hybrid/stripped bass like to fatting up in the fall to get ready for winter. November can be very good fishing for Lake Ray Hubbard if you love the cooler weather, the later start times and the best part is the lake is pretty much empty even on the weekends.
White Bass Patterns
Starting this time of year I start out throwing shallow. Sometime you will see shad and signs of life but most of the time you are basically bass fishing. Chunking and winding points, cuts and flats that have adjacent deep water near by. As the water gets cooler you can catch them like this all thru out the day. Best times are right at daylight then right at dusk. If your shallow bite slows then move out to the drop offs and end of points anywhere from 15-22 ft depth to locate fish. Most of the times if you mark a few fish others see to show up, don’t be surprised if its hot and heavy for 5 minutes then nothing. Move around in the area and re locate them.
White Bass Lures.
You cant beat a 3 or 4 inch Co-Ho with a 1/2 oz head this time of year to throw shallow. If you are brave enough and do not mind the hooks a rattle trap in silver or chrome works well. Every now and then if I have some shad activity I will throw a 4 inch top water , spook, and work it back in quick burst then pause. White bass on Lake Ray Hubbard love a small 3/4 oz slab with jig about 12 inches above this time of year. There are a lot of thread fin shad and some quite small.
