Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, blue catfish, black crappie, bluegill, tilapia, white bass and alligator gar at Falcon International Reservoir in Central Texas.

Famous for monster bass, Falcon Lake (Falcon International Reservoir) is a 83,800-acre lake on the southern border of central Texas, at Falcon State Park. With over 400 miles of shoreline (about half on the US side), there is so much water to fish it would take a lifetime to cover it all. Largemouth bass are the main draw here, but catfish, bluegill, white bass and crappie also deserve attention. Additionally the lake has populations of tilapia and gar. The lake is a literal fish factory and delivers both quantity and quality. Big bass and monster catfish are caught with regularity. And, if you just enjoy catching lots of fish and getting away from the crowd, you'll love Falcon. Boat launch ramps are open to the public - one at Falcon State Park and one at Zapata. Other areas with primitive ramps are available during low-water conditions - some requiring four-wheel drive.
