White bass and hybrid striped bass, which school during warmer months, can be caught on topwater when they are at the surface, spoons when they drop deep, and shad imitating lures when they are at intermediate depths. Locate bass around available cover, including aquatic vegetation, brush, submerged timber, boat docks and around rocky points. Catfish, which stay relatively close to river channels, can be caught year round. Canoes and kayaks are a simple way to fish the backs of the many coves and inlets around the lake. Use one of the several boat ramps to launch your pleasure, water-sport, or fishing boat. Boats are also available for rent locally. For anglers preferring to fish from the bank, the shoreline is accessible at various locations around the lake - including Lake Brownwood State Park.
