ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES

Meredith Reservoir has a very diverse fish community and provides opportunities for every type of angler. Walleye are the primary sport fish in the reservoir. The walleye population in the reservoir is maintained through natural reproduction with high quality fishing available in the spring. Meredith Reservoir also has an excellent smallmouth bass population. Most of the reservoir is rocky habitat, which is preferred by smallmouth bass. A number of 4-pound and larger fish are caught from Meredith each year. White bass provide an excellent fishery, especially during summer and fall. Largemouth bass are limited by habitat, but crappie fishing is generally good with occasional years of excellent fishing. Yellow perch are caught on rare occasions; the Texas record of 1.04 pounds came from Lake Meredith in 1996. Channel and flathead catfish are present in good numbers
