  • Richland Chambers Fishing Report - TX

    Fishing Friends,

    In 1999, I went to the Fairfield County Courthouse to get a DBA for Gone Fishin' Guide Service and my " How Time Flies When You're Having Fun"!!! 😊

    This year signals our 20th year of Fishing, Fun and hosting literally thousands of Fishermen, Fisherwomen and LOTS OF KIDDOS on Richland Chambers Lake. I can honestly say that " It's been so enjoyable that I haven't worked a day in the past 20 years"! Adam and I have tried to focus on Family Fishing Fun and specifically targeted Folks who just want to Enjoy a day on the Lake, Catch a lot of fish and Make some Memories. We're blessed in that our efforts have paid off, we get to do what we enjoy doing everyday, and hopefully have more years to do more of the same!

    Our calendar for the Spring, 2019 timeframe is already starting to fill. As a reminder, we fish everyday except for Sunday, normally conduct only one trip a day and fish mostly in the Morning during the Spring/Summer months. Here's a couple of reminders as we get ready for the busiest three months of the year:

    *We still have lots of Weekday Openings and a few Saturday Openings in March. Spring Break Week for most School Systems in Texas is the Week of March 11th.

    *April & May are two of the BEST Months of the Year to catch White Bass & Hybrid Stripers. We ONLY HAVE TWO SATURDAYS WITH A BOAT OPEN in April and they are April 6 & 13. (One boat is available each Saturday.)

    *May is my favorite Spring Month and we always end up turning away business as the calendar will be full. At this time we still have at least one boat open Saturday, May 11, 18, & 25. Lots of Weekdays are available. Also , on the Memorial Day Weekend we have boats available.

    Here's hoping your schedule allows for a Fishing Trip this year! We recommend that you reserve your Spring date as early as possible so we can accommodate you. If you have questions, call or email and Let's Go Fishin'!
