Mattern Guide Service on Lake Palestine & Sam Rayburn & Lake Fairfield
Hello Everybody,

PSALM 104: VERSES 1&2; Bless the LORD, O my soul, O LORD my God, Thou art very great, thou art clothed with hounor and majesty. Who coverest thyself with LIGHT as with a garment; who stretchest out the heavens like a garment.

LAKE FAIRFIELD: Well as alot of you know in October I start guiding on Lake Fairfield thru February along with Lake Palestine and Sam Rayburn.

Lake Fairfield is a power plant lake having turbines that intake the lakes water as a cooling for the engines then discharge it out of the discharge channel. It warms to a 84 degree temperature as it enters the Main Lake. This keeps the Lake at a comfortable 63 degree lake most of winter.

But what is unusual about Lake Fairfield is it is stocked with REDFISH. Some are small like 16-18 inches but some are up to 40 lbers. Mostly the Big uns run about 8-10 lbs. The locals take nets and cast for live bait such as shad and perch and then park and bottom fish like you would for catfish.

This week the Reds are really on with just about everybody getting their limits. We had about 18 reds up to 10 lbs. on a trip this week and that was entirely on artificials.

The Bass are mostly feeding at night right now until the first low 30's cold snap then they will start hitting the shallows. The Lake is lower than I have ever seen it. The 2nd boat ramp has been dredged out some and you can put in there.

Reds were hitting for me Carolina rigged creature baits in Watermelon Red and Firetiger crankbaits that run 6-10 feet.

For booking a Guided trip just call me at 903-478-2633 or 903-724-0961. You can e-mail me at My Web-page is

God bless: Don Mattern Sr.
