Predominant Fish Species
Commercial maps may be available.
All species are currently managed under statewide regulations.
The largemouth bass population is low density with few fish available for harvest. Bluegill and redear sunfish are present with high numbers of small fish available as prey, but low densities of quality-size fish available for angler harvest.
Natural habitat is present in the form of inundated timber and aquatic vegetation. TPWD has worked with American Electric Power and the City of Longview to install additional structure made of recycled Christmas trees. See online fish attractor map | Get downloadable file
