Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, black crappie, white crappie, bluegill, longear sunfish, redear sunfish and white bass at Wright Patman Reservoir in East Texas.

170 miles of shoreline await anglers at Wright Patman Lake, a 19,000-acre lake in the northeast corner of Texas. Expect to find bass, crappie, catfish, sunfish and white bass. Much of the shoreline is difficult to reach for fishing from the bank, however there are multiple areas for this - including local parks and campgrounds. Many of the areas work well for portage of a canoe or kayak. Multiple boat launch ramps around the reservoir serve the public for launching of all sizes and types of family and fishing boats. The basin of the lake bed has radical depth changes which create structure for fish and baitfish. This natural structure, including humps, islands, creek and river channels, ledges and points, along with standing timber and aquatic vegetation provide cover for all fish species in the lake. Spring, early summer and fall are the best times to catch these fish in shallow water. In winter and the heat of summer they tend to move deeper.
