FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Inks Lake offers a variety of cover and structure. The shoreline contains numerous rock piles, ledges, and chunk rock banks. Brush piles and gravel beds have been placed near fishing piers and other strategic locations to attract more fish. Several private boat docks, especially on the west side of the lake, hold fish year-round. Water color in the reservoir is fairly clear. Although the lake remains at a near constant level, no significant aquatic vegetation is present. See online fish attractor map

ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
Inks Lake is noted for its picturesque scenery, but fishing can be good as well. It contains under-rated largemouth bass and Guadalupe bass populations, along with several species of sunfish (bream). White bass are regularly caught in the reservoir, and a low density white crappie population is present. Channel and flathead catfish occur throughout the reservoir.
TIPS & TACTICS
Largemouth bass anglers may find success by fishing topwater lures, metal flake willow leaf spinnerbaits and shallow- to medium-depth crankbaits worked along rocky banks. Flipping boat docks with jigs and plastic worms can also be productive. Bluegill and redbreast sunfish up 8 inches in length can be caught using meal worms, crickets, or pieces of earthworms fished under floats almost anywhere along the shoreline. Often, the larger sunfish can be caught in slightly deeper water without the use of a float.

Starting in February, white bass begin congregating in the upper end of the reservoir as the urge to spawn motivates their movements. Productive lures for white bass include using twister tail jigs, small hair jigs, small crankbaits, and small topwaters. Live bait fishing with minnows is also productive, and usually catches crappie simultaneously. Catfish anglers can find channel and flathead catfish throughout the reservoir. Stinkbaits and cutbaits work well for channel cats, while live bait is preferred for large flathead catfish.
