Fish populations in Millers Creek Reservoir were surveyed in 2017-2019 using electrofishing, low-frequency electrofishing, and trap netting. Historical data are presented with the 2017-2020 data for comparison. This report summarizes the results of the surveys and contains a management plan for the reservoir based on those findings.

Reservoir Description

Millers Creek is a 1,794-acre impoundment located in Baylor County on Millers Creek in the Brazos River Basin approximately 77 miles southwest of Wichita Falls, Texas. The reservoir was completed in 1974 and is owned and operated by the North Central Texas Municipal Water Authority in Munday, Texas. The shoreline habitat consists of natural and rocky shoreline. Shoreline and boat access are adequate.

Management History

Important sport fish include White Bass, Largemouth Bass, White Crappie, and catfish. The management plan from the 2016 survey report included ceasing the stocking of Palmetto Bass because of lack of fishing pressure targeting them. Florida Largemouth Bass were last stocked in 2016 in response to the reservoir refilling after a severe drought.
