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.
