Anglers will find a variety of fish including flathead catfish, crappie, striped bass, channel catfish, redear sunfish, bluegill, white bass and largemouth bass.
Striped bass fishing can be very good on this long, sinuous reservoir. Downrigging jigs and crankbaits as well as drifting live shad can be very effective. The mid-lower lake seems to be best. Largemouth bass fishing can be excellent around any of the 1000-plus boat docks and piers. Crankbaits, jigs, and worms are top bets. Catfishing is good throughout the reservoir. The stained water and abundant timber along the Brazos River channel makes for excellent trotlining. Crappie can be caught using live minnows fished around docks, submerged brush, and bridge pilings. White bass are best during the spring in the river above the lake. Small jigs and spinners work best. Sunfish can be caught using live worms or crickets fished around docks, especially in early summer.
