TIPS & TACTICS

Because of the clear water conditions, this can be an excellent night fishing lake for largemouth bass. Casting white spinnerbaits and topwaters or pitching jigs with medium to medium-heavy bait casting tackle to the shoreline cover often works well. For live-bait fishing try minnows suspended under corks along the shoreline cover. Sight fishing for bass during the spring spawn is also popular. Sunfish are fun to catch on a fly rod or with light spinning tackle. Large common carp have been caught using prepared baits.

FISHING COVER / STRUCTURE

Most of the cover on this reservoir is located along the bank and consists of laydown logs and trees, overhanging brush, cypress tree roots, bulrush, and cattails. Some submerged aquatic vegetation can be found in the lower end of the lake near the Longhorn Dam. This vegetation grows on humps located offshore. There are also some weedbeds in the upper end of the lake. Barton Creek enters on the south side at approximately mid-lake. The water in this spring-fed creek remains warm during the winter.

AQUATIC VEGETATION

Eurasian watermilfoil.
