ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Largemouth bass angling is fair at Lake Bryan. The lack of suitable habitat limits spawning and recruitment success. Anglers fishing around rip rapped shoreline can still expect to have moderate success catching fish from 14 to 16 inches. Channel catfish are also quite abundant and are easily caught on natural baits from either a boat or the bank. Crappie fishing is fair in early spring in shallow water and from floating courtesy dock. A variety of sunfish species abound in the lake and can be most easily caught around rip rap by fly rod anglers on popping bugs and insect imitation flies or with live worms and crickets fished under a float.
TIPS & TACTICS
Largemouth bass anglers are most successful during early spring and fall. Most successful anglers fish from a boat around the abundant rip rap along the dam as well at the end of the discharge canal. The most commonly used baits are fish imitating crank baits and soft plastics. Channel catfish anglers will be most successful using natural smelly baits fished on or near the bottom. While most catfish caught are rather small, there are plenty of 12 to 14 inch fish to ensure at least a few for the cooler. Crappie can be caught on live minnows and jigs in early spring from courtesy dock and along shallow shoreline. Sunfish anglers can catch their fill of fish from most any location on the lake but especially around the rip rap areas. Fly anglers can find plenty of action on popping bugs and insect imitation flies. Others can expect to catch sunfish on live worms and crickets.
