The lake is located on the Neches River 14 miles west of Jasper on US 190. It has a surface area of 10,687 acres with a maximum depth of 35 feet.
Bluegill and redear sunfish are present in high numbers and provide good fishing, especially for youth or inexperienced anglers.
Due to the shallow nature of the reservoir, the most popular game fish at B.A. Steinhagen is the catfish. Channel, blue, and flathead catfish are all present in good numbers.
Above the reservoir, the Angelina and Neches rivers provide excellent habitat for spotted bass, crappie, and catfish.
An average population of largemouth bass is present and fishing is fair. Good numbers of spotted bass are present in the Angelina River. A good crappie fishery exists, especially in the spring. Low numbers of white bass are present and the fishery is limited to the early spring during the spawning run above the reservoir.
While at the lake visitors can enjoy camping, hiking, boating, canoeing, fishing, swimming, mountain biking and wildlife and bird watching.
