O H Ivie Lake or O H Ivie Reservoir is located outside of Concho, Texas, in the central region of the state. Its 19,000 acres are rife with trees, brush, and aquatic vegetation that provide cover for crappie, catfish, gar, hybrids, stripers, bass, and white bass. The lake is highly fishable from many points along the shoreline, where kayaks and canoes can also be portaged in. Boat launch are available to put in all kinds of watercraft, from bass boats to ski boats to pleasure craft.
This reservoir contains acres of trees and brush which were not cleared before its creation, which means plenty of standing timber and flooded cover, including saltcedar, which makes most of the fish cover. Rock is the main structure of the main reservoir. The river arms have mud flat structure.
The largemouth bass of O.H. Ivie Lake are caught with both live and artificial baits around standing timber. You might also flip jigs and cast soft plastics around the saltcedar. Carolina-rigged plastic worms, minnows and water dogs fished off drop-offs and humps twenty feet or deeper have caught some trophy-sized fish.
Catfish can be caught anywhere on the reservoir using cut or live baits. Crappie are more easily caught at night. White bass can be caught by trolling crank baits near the dam.
The reservoir has special bag and size limits for certain fish.
