FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Lake Brownwood has many small coves, bays, and creeks with a variety of habitat. The lake is primarily lined by rocky structure and boat docks. The upper end of the Jim Ned and Pecan Bayou arms have standing timber, black willow trees and buttonbush. Water willow and bulrush are scattered throughout the lake, but water willow is most abundant in Sowell Creek. TPWD has placed fish attracting structures in the lake, with funding from the Largemouth Bass Conservation License Plate and support from local governments and fishing clubs. Anglers may use GPS in conjunction with a fish finder to locate these structures. See online fish attractor map

ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Largemouth bass and white bass fishing are rated good to excellent. Summer and early fall are particularly good for white bass. Florida largemouth bass were introduced in 1975. Catfish, crappie, and freshwater drum can also be found in this lake.
TIPS & TACTICS
White bass are most easily caught from early May through October when they school in the main lake area. During this time, they can be caught on the surface. "Slabbing" ?-1oz. slab spoons along creek and river channels in 12-25 feet of water in late summer for whites can produce some fantastic fishing. "Jumpfishing" is a popular technique for schools of surface-feeding fish. Night fishing for white bass under lighted boat docks is also very effective. Largemouth bass fishing is best from September through May. Fishing rocks and points with crankbaits, jigs, spinnerbaits, and topwater will produce.
FISHING REPORT
GOOD. Water slightly stained; 78-85 degrees; 3.45 feet low. Bass are good to 6.50 pounds on crankbaits and jigs around the rock cut and docks with brush in 6-10 feet of water. Some Bass are still chasing the shad spawn but most are in a summer pattern. Crappie are good to excellent with 1.25 pound fish coming on minnows and black/chartreuse or white color jigs from 10-15 feet of water in brush piles and around lighted docks. White bass are excellent to 1.50 pounds on small swimbaits or crankbaits under the lights at night. Catfish are good on cut bait and liver around the flats in 6-12 feet of water.
