Largemouth bass angling starts December-February, earlier in the year than most lakes due to the heated water. Many anglers report success using jigs and pigs or lizards pitched into the openings behind cattails and cutgrass. Fishing for catfish can be productive by drifting live bait across the points along the area opposite of the TXU picnic area. Trolling along the west shoreline and along the dam can be productive for red drum.
Inundated timber is abundant in the upper end of the lake and in both coves on the east side. Hydrilla forms a fringe around the reservoir out to approximately 5 feet. Pockets of native pondweed provide openings in the hydrilla and make good ambush points. The heated cove in this power plant cooling lake provides warm water even in the winter. Emergent cattails and cutgrass grow in shallow water on the shoreward side of the hydrilla.
