Fish populations in Lake Winnsboro were surveyed in 2006 using electrofishing and trap nets, and in 2007 using gill nets. Aquatic vegetation and habitat surveys were conducted on Lake Winnsboro during August 2006. This report summarizes the results of the surveys and contains a management plan for the reservoir based on those findings.

Reservoir Description

Lake Winnsboro is a 1,100-acre impoundment located in Wood County, Texas, on Big Sandy Creek, a tributary of the Sabine River. It was constructed by Wood County for flood control and recreation. Habitat consists primarily of featureless banks and shallow areas are usually dominated by native emergent aquatic vegetation.

Management History

Important sport fish include largemouth bass, white crappie, black crappie, and channel catfish. The management plan from the 2002 survey report recommended monitoring the Florida largemouth bass allele frequency using liver samples from age-0 largemouth bass collected during fall electrofishing. Florida largemouth bass were stocked most recently in 1998 and 1999.
