Fairfield Lake

Public Access Facilities

Return to Fairfield Lake fishing page

Fairfield Lake continues to experience late-summer fish kills, and TPWD has suspended stocking at this lake until further notice. Fish kills have been documented on this power-plant lake since 2003. They occur in August and September when hot weather and shorter days lead to a shortage of oxygen in the water. For updates, visit the Facebook page for TPWD's Tyler field office.

Access to the lake is provided through Fairfield Lake State Park, which may be closed for wildlife management activities on occasion. Check the park web page for closure notices and dates.

Two boat ramps are available in Fairfield Lake State Park, which also offers a fishing pier, fishing bank, cleaning stations, restrooms, and campsites for tents and RVs. Duck hunting is not allowed on the reservoir. For details, choose a point on the map or a name in the chart below.
