Mattern Guide Service on Lake Fairfield
Hello Everybody,

PSALM 46: GOD is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

LAKE FAIRFIELD: Well Lake Fairfield is quite unique because it is a freshwater Power Plant Lake which is stocked with Bass but also Redfish. These hard fighting critters are a welcome bonus while catching Bass on artificials.

Clients enjoyed some great Bass action with about 15 Bass come to the boat and about that many lost that came unbuttoned along with about 8 Redfish on the same baits as the Bass were hitting.

Water temps were in the 70's and the Lake Level has come up considerably. The far ramp is still the safest and anyone can launch there. Bass and reds were caught on plastics rigged carolina rig style. Creature baits in watermelons was the ticket. Reds and Bass were located near points and shallow sand bars early then off the breaklines in about 12 feet later in the day.

We also caught some on shrimp fished off bottom near the intake. Most of the redfish were small this week and locals said they were hittting all night long on shrimp catching up to 30 a night. The Full moon phase surely had to make a difference in the timing of the bite. I had Chip Berry and son ,Stokely with me from Tyler and we had a great time and also saw the many Bald Eagles and Wildlife that fly around and live in this State Park.

If you would like some of this action and want to book a trip just e-mail me at or call 903-478-2633 or 903-724-0961. Thanks and God Bless. Don Mattern Sr.
