Short Take: 44,752 acres, filled with shallow standing timber and well-defined creek channels. It was mid-afternoon on a warm June day, and while Alton Jones and a friend had enjoyed moderate success fishing since daybreak, they were still looking for what Jones labels a “magic spot” where the bass are big and they’re all hungry at the same time. The two anglers pulled up to an underwater hump near the mouth of a small creek named Long Arm Branch where the water is 22 feet deep, and Jones made a long crankbait cast so his retrieve pulled the lure down the hump toward deeper water. Impounded in 1987, the lake immediately established itself as a quality bass fishery capable of producing plenty of double-digit largemouths; biologists have recorded a faster growth rate for bass here than on any other lake in Texas. The experience enjoyed by Jones has been duplicated by numerous other anglers who fish Richland-Chambers often. Primary Species: Largemouth bass.
