Living on the Gulf of Mexico means most anglers tend to focus on saltwater fishing. However, the Coastal Bend has some fantastic spots for freshwater fishing that you should really check out. Lake Corpus Christi is the star, with over 18,000 acres to enjoy. Six rivers are located in the area for a fishing adventure: Guadalupe, Nueces, Navidad, Frio, Lavaca, and San Antonio. There are also three reservoirs that keep fishing in mind. Whether you head to Lake Texana, Choke Canyon Reservoir, or Coleto Creek Reservoir, you’re sure to enjoy it.
A variety of fish make their home in these freshwater locations. You’ll want to pick up a map at one of the bait shops or the park offices to get the full scoop on where to go. Talk to the employees to get an idea of what suits your fish preferences best. You’ll find lots of largemouth bass in the reservoirs. They’ often reach 5 pounds and over. You’ll also find several varieties of catfish, among other species. Blue catfish are the most abundant. Crappie is a species that is more frequently popping up, and spring is a good time to pull some in.
