Considered an excellent bass fishing destination, Canyon Lake in the south-central Texas, is 8,300-acres of fishing opportunity. In addition to bass, the lake has populations of crappie, catfish, stripers, white bass, sunfish and gar. Steep, rocky banks and submerged trees are the primary targets for bass and crappie anglers. The generally clear water enhances the topwater fishing during warmer months. The water becomes more stained toward the river end of the lake and enhances shallow-water fishing techniques. Catfish are in most areas of the lake with the higher concentrations toward the river end. Stripers and white bass school and follow schools of bait - toward the surface in warm months and deeper as the water turns cold. Eighty miles of shoreline provide plenty of places to wet a line, including many areas with access for fishing from the bank. Fishing from a boat, canoe or kayak enhances the opportunity to reach water not available to anglers from shore. A variety of boats are available for rent at numerous locations around the lake.
