Nearby Lakes Provide Year-Round Fishing Fun
Houston's climate allows anglers to cast a line year-round.
The next time you're ready to go fishing, the best nearby lakes include:
Known as a prime spot for anglers, Lake Conroe is famous for its large fish. It spans 21,000 acres and is dominated by water in the lower two-thirds of the reservoir. Man-made structures have been used to create fish attractor reefs, and in 2016, a monster 52-inch blue catfish was caught here. Visitors can also cast a line for crappie, bluegill, and largemouth bass (the lake's most sought-after species).
Bane Park Lake
Bane Park features a five-acre wheelchair accessible lake. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department stocks it every year with rainbow trout, and the water is also home to bluegill, largemouth bass, and channel catfish. Catch-and-release fishing is encouraged but not required.
Mary Jo Peckham Park Lake
Spanning 31 acres, Mary Jo Peckham Park offers something for everyone including a lake. Visitors can enjoy both pier and bank access, and the lake is stocked with trout in the winter and catfish during the summer to encourage anglers to return frequently. The lake also has bass, and a five per day limit applies to all species.
Nestled next to the Sam Houston National Forest, Lake Livingston is one of the largest lakes in the state. It's a notable white bass fishery, and visitors find it comes complete with three boat ramps, two fish cleaning stations, and a fishing pier. The lake is also home to channel catfish, crappie, and largemouth bass, and anglers who need equipment can borrow cane fishing poles at the park store.
