Angling Opportunities

Fishing opportunities abound in this segment of the Brazos River for largemouth, spotted and occasional white bass. Channel catfish, freshwater drum, and sunfish are also good species to target. Fishing for largemouth and spotted bass is best when turbidity in the river is low, as these species feed primarily by sight. Turbidity is highest when releases from Lake Whitney are occurring, or after significant rain events.

Anglers are urged to practice moderation in harvesting sportfish in this segment of the Brazos River, especially largemouth and spotted bass.

Fishing Regulations

All species are currently managed under statewide regulations.
