Sand Bass Fishing Lake Ray Roberts
Lake Ray Roberts is known for GREAT White Bass fishing. Many of you may refer to these fish as Sand Bass, especially if you’re from North Texas. They are fun to catch and great to eat! Jim has been fishing for White Bass on Ray Roberts since 1990. He knows every bump, hump and structure on the Lake to find White Bass. He will put you on the fish so that you fill your cooler for a Big Fish Fry! Once the day is done Jim will fillet and bag your Sand Bass so that all you have to do is begin planning how you’re going to cook them.
About Lake Ray Roberts
One of 22 reservoirs on the Trinity River, 29,000 acre Lake Ray Roberts provides water to Dallas and Denton and helps contain floods, something it did admirably in 2015 when the record book got tossed out. More importantly for anglers and outdoor enthusiasts, the lake provides habitat for fish and wildlife and a venue for fishing, swimming and boating. Folks can catch largemouth and white bass, crappie and catfish here. The lake record largemouth bass is 15.18 lbs; blue catfish 53.09 pounds, and flathead catfish, 62.60 lbs.
Those fishing from a boat are likely to hook crappie around brush piles, standing dead trees and bridge piers, especially bridges at Buck Creek (north of Pilot Point) and on FM 922 across the north side of the lake. Sand bass surface in open water south of Wolf Island, north of Hawthorn Island and off the park’s Culp Branch, which is just west of the dam. These fish like jigs and minnows. Black bass lurk along cliff faces on the east side of the dam, as well as in coves and around underwater structure. Catfish tend to hang out under trees where egrets and cormorants roost. Many anglers enlist the services of local Lake Ray Roberts Fishing Guide, Ucatchem Guide Services, to put them on the best places to fish.
Since 1987, when the lake was dammed, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has stocked these waters with hundreds of thousands of Florida largemouth bass as well as channel catfish and shad.
