Stockton Lake is a 25,000-acre fishing paradise with more than 300 miles of shoreline. Those who come here can enjoy camping, picnicking, hiking – and of course, great fishing. Some of the fish you can find here include black bass, white bass, crappie, walleye, catfish, and bluegill. Many of the largemouth bass here exceed five pounds and can be found swimming all around the lake. The smallmouth bass tend to stick to the lower part of the lake and near the tributaries. Each spring, large schools of white bass make their annual run to the upper portions of the main tributaries. If you’re looking to catch crappie, you’ll have to look a little harder. They tend to hang out near submerged objects and weed beds, often feeding at dawn and dusk. The walleye here can be especially hard to catch. While you can’t fish near the marina area or boat ramps, you’ll find many boat launch areas around the lake to help you get out on the water.
