FISHING COVER/STRUCTURE
Rocky structure is available at the dam, while other parts of the lake are mostly gradually-sloping silt or gravel bottom. Cover consists mainly of flooded saltcedar brush.
ANGLING OPPORTUNITIES
New Ballinger Lake went nearly dry in 2011, but filled again in 2012. Fishing will be poor until stockings begin to rebuild fish populations.
TIPS & TACTICS
Largemouth bass are caught on minnows and artificial lures around the flooded saltcedars and rip-rap. White crappie can be caught with minnows or small jigs in the flooded saltcedars. Catfish are caught throughout the lake using live or prepared baits. Fish for walleye using small crankbaits and spinnerbaits along the rocky areas, or drift a minnow on a small jig head in deeper rocky areas.
