Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, white crappie, bluegill, white bass, hybrid striped bass and longnose gar at Stamford Lake in Central Texas.

With water levels that fluctuate drastically, Lake Stamford (Stamford Reservoir) can be a new challenge each time you fish it. This 5,000-acre lake in the north-central part of the state, at Stamford, has populations of catfish, bass, crappie, gar, bluegill, white bass and hybrid stripers. Crappie are a steady standby here, always relating to timber, brush or drop offs - depth varies with season. Bass move shallow in spring and fall, hanging around vegetation, then move deeper in summer and winter where they can be found on points, islands, humps, ledges and creek channels. Excellent boat ramps facilitate launching of big pleasure boats and pontoons to smaller fishing boats. Campgrounds around the lake provide access to the shoreline for bank fishing and portage of canoes and kayaks.
