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

JOHN 4: Verses 23 & 24; But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to worship HIM.

GOD is a Spirit' and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

SAM RAYBURN: Current Lake Level is 159.77 , Full pool is 164.Water temps in the low 70's to high 60's. Clients enjoyed some great action at Big Sam catching Bass up to about 6 lbs. The spinnerbait bite was on using Nichols White/Chartruse double willow leaf in the stained glass blade pattern. Bass were set up on the Grass edges in 2- 8 feet. Carolina rigs worked well also rigged for the shallower rigging near the grass with Zoom Big Critter Craws in Watermelon colors.

LAKE PALESTINE: Current Lake level is 346.51 Full pool is 345. The Neches River in the North is flowing from all the run off and is terribly muddy. Even Kickapoo Creek was running under the 315 bridge. It was not as Muddy but messed up real good. I think it will take about another week to clear up and get stable for a descent Bass Bite.

Mid-Lake to Dam in good shape right now. Bass are following the migration of the schools of shad into the coves ,pockets, and creeks to fatten up for the winter.

Clients enjoyed Bass up to 9 lbs. in the last few weeks with alot of 1-3 lbers. Bass are hitting Texas rigged plastics and wackys such as creature baits,worms,flukes, and finesse worms. Popular colors have been Watermelons,Red Shad, and Junebugs

Moving baits such as swimbaits,spinnerbaits, sammies and poppers have been working when into the fish.

The Regional Fishers Of Men Championship will be held on Lake Palestine October 30th and 31st. I have been fishing for the last two weeks with some of the nicest and greatest fishermen I have ever met. Some from Arkansa,Mississippi, and Lousianna. We had a great time Praising God and catching those Bass.

LAKE FAIRFIELD: The redfish are still biting good and the Bass are slow with Reds hitting live bait and fresh dead. Shad and crawfish and shrimp are working fished off rip-rap and main lake points. Water temps are in the low 70's.

If you want to book a trip on any of these three Lakes just e-mail me at or call me at 903-478-2633 or 902-724-0961
