Hubbard Creek Lake has abundant standing timber, brush, boat docks, black willow trees, buttonbush, and aquatic vegetation. Rocky structure and cover are also abundant. Hydrilla was found in the reservoir in 1998 and is primarily located around the Tanglewood Island area, the dam, and in Enco slough.
Look for white crappie and white bass fishing in Hubbard and Sandy Creeks in late fall and throughout the winter. A very effective technique during this time is to locate brush in 10-15 feet of water in the creek channel and vertically fish a minnow or small jig. Flipping bulrush, standing timber and brush is very effective for largemouth bass. Hubbard Creek Lake is also effectively fished using crankbaits and topwater lures. During late summer and early fall, schools of largemouth and white bass will often feed on the surface around the Tanglewood Island area. Drift fishing shad during the summer is a good technique for blue catfish.
