Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, white crappie, bluegill, white bass, hybrid striped bass, longnose gar and spotted gar at Lake Bridgeport in Central Texas.

Year-round fishing makes Lake Bridgeport a favorite of area anglers. This 12,000-acre lake, in the north-central part of the state, has 170 miles of shoreline and many miles of channels, ledges and points to fish. Crappie, catfish and bass draw the most attention, but the lake also supports good populations of white bass, hybrid striped bass and gar. Most all the fish (and bait) move shallow in spring and fall, retreating to deeper water during the heat of summer and cold of winter. Bass in this lake allow you to fish with everything in your tackle box - from top water while the fish are shallow, to heavy jigs, spoons and worms when the fish move deep. Launch your pleasure, pontoon or fishing boat to see and fish some scenic areas of the lake, not reachable from shore. Numerous places around the lake provide access for bank fishing, or portage of a canoe or kayak.
