Fishing Lake Whitney
Lake Whitney is one of the most beautiful lakes in Texas, and you will have easy access to top-notch fishing for several species. It may be smaller than other lakes in the state with only 23,500 acres of surface area but the brush piles, bluffs, and rock points make the lake a special palace to catch fish.
White and Striped Bass Fishing Lake Whitney
The striped bass and white bass fishing is solid, and you can find them in the coolest water they can find. Creek and river inlets or deep channels are a great place to start when looking for these fish. Targeting these fish is fairly easy with traditional tackle and using live bait or artificial lures is popular. Striped bass are especially strong fighters and grow considerably larger than white bass but both are great options for dinner.

There is always a chance that you may hook into a giant with the record largemouth currently just short of 12 lbs. Smallmouth bass also live here but in fewer numbers. These beautiful fish don't grow as big as largemouth but are just as exciting to catch, which sometimes happens by accident. The best bait to target these fish are artificial lures, soft plastics, and live bait, but artificial lures tend to be the most effective.

Despite their unique looks, catfish have become a food staple and part of the lake culture. Flathead catfish are less abundant than blue and channel catfish but all of them are fun to catch. The time-tested way to catch these fish is to use smelly bait like cut bait or stink bait, and cast it into deeper water and wait. This is the perfect type of fishing for those who want a laidback approach. With tons of fight, big fish, and plenty of time to talk with your friends, fishing for catfish is a perfect trip for any group.
