Predominant Fish Species
A contour map is available. Download the map or pick up a copy at the Abilene fisheries office, (325) 692-0921.
This reservoir has special regulations on some fishes. See bag and size limits for this lake.
Willow trees and dead, flooded brush dominate. Ample rocky structure exists on the east bank and the dam. Some bulrushes provide cover on west side.
Blue catfish appear to be concentrated off shore, while channel catfish fishing has been very good close to shore near flooded vegetation. For crappie, there are plenty of willow trees where anglers can dabble minnows, crappie jigs, or plastic worms.
