TIPS & TACTICS

Most fish species will be found near the Wichita River mouth, around Rattlesnake Island, and near the west side channels and coves. White bass can be caught on slabs throughout the reservoir in the fall.


FISHING COVER / STRUCTURE

This lake is currently about 25% full, with very little structure in the water. Most banks are mud and much of the lake is dry. There are still some docks at least partially in the water in the Moonshine Bay area. Some cover is provided by riprap near the dam and certain rocky humps around the lake.


AQUATIC VEGETATION

None at current low water levels.


FISHING REGULATIONS

All species are currently managed under statewide regulations, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Freshwater Bag and Length Limits
