Lake Texana Fish Attractor Project

Return to Lake Texana fishing page

Twenty-four Georgia-style PVC structures were deployed in 5 locations within the lower half of the lake to provide bottom-up effects enhancing phytoplankton growth and act as a refuge and food source for various prey in areas where habitat was previously void or limited. These fish habitat structures were deployed in shoreline (sites 1 and 2) and boat (all sites) locations that anglers can access and utilize. Locations are shown on the map and chart below. Anglers may use GPS in conjunction with a fish finder to locate the attractors. Coordinates are also available in downloadable files.
