Lake O’ the Pines, in east-central Texas, has 17,000 acres that provide a wide variety of choices for anglers, both in types of fish and in ways to fish them. Populations of crappie, bass, white bass, hybrid snipers, catfish, sunfish, and bowfin abound in the lake. Several boat ramps provide access for watercraft, some for a fee and others at no charge. If you don’t have your own fishing boat, rentals are readily available. The shallow upper parts of the lake are accessible using canoes and kayaks. The 150-plus miles of shoreline are accessible from the water or by walking.
The largemouth bass, white bass and crappie populations offer many fish within legal size limits. Black crappie and white crappie are both present, though black crappie is the dominant species. Channel, blue and flathead catfish can all be found here. Quality-sized sunfish such as bluegill, redear and redbreast can be caught too.
Several artificial fish attractors have been installed in Lake O’ the Pines. Lake O ’the Pines has special regulations on some fish, and some area restrictions on transporting nongame fish between bodies of water.
