As one of the most beautiful lake settings in Texas, Lake Whitney (Whitney Lake) is a 23,500-acre lake in the east-central part of the state. This is one of those lakes that seems to have good fishing for virtually everything that swims here. Three types of bass, three species of catfish, both species of crappie, striped bass, hybrid stripers, gar and several species of sunfish call Whitney home. As one of the top lakes in the state for stripers, you can expect to catch the big ones shallower in the spring - and deeper other times of the year. White bass and hybrid striped bass follow schools of bait and move shallowest in spring and fall. Bass, crappie and sunfish can be most easily caught in spring and fall but are available deeper in the cold of winter and the heat of summer. Catfish fishing is good year round and there are some monsters cruising the river and creek channels here. The lake boasts 225 miles of shoreline, some with access for bank fishing and portage of a canoe or kayak. Numerous boat ramps facilitate launching of most any size family or fishing boats.
