No New Posts Lake Bob Sandlin

On Big Cypress Creek 5 miles southwest of Mount Pleasant in Titus, Camp, and Franklin counties

Surface area: 9,004 acres

Maximum depth: 65.6 feet
From Texas Park & Wildlife site: The largemouth bass population is moderately abundant with good numbers of legal-size fish available for harvest. Spotted bass are present but at low densities. White bass is a popular species with high numbers of quality size fish. Channel catfish in recent years have become more abundant across all size classes, and there are plenty of good-sized fish available for harvest. Good numbers of legal size crappie are present and provide good fishing opportunities. Redear sunfish, the dominant sunfish species in the lake, are moderately abundant and also showing good sizes.

No New Posts Lake Conroe

Location: West Fork of San Jacinto River in Montgomery and Walker Counties

Surface area: 20,118 acres

Normal Clarity: Slight to moderate algal staining

Lake Conroe is dominated by open water in the lower two-thirds of the reservoir, with some standing timber still present along the river channel in the upper reaches. Most of the standing timber is slightly submerged when the lake is at conservation pool, making navigation hazardous in these areas. Bulkheads with boat docks dominate the shore in the lower reservoir; the upper reservoir (the portion lying within the Sam Houston National Forest) is primarily featureless shoreline. Substrates range from sandy to silty. A few aquatic plants dot shoreline areas, primarily in areas being planted by TPWD and the US Army Corps of Engineers as part of an ongoing Aquatic Habitat Enhancement Initiative.

Rated Excellent Fishing for Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Catfish and Hybrid Striped Bass.   Good for Crappie
