Many local fishermen consider Bardwell Lake as one of the best kept secrets in the state. Although the largemouth bass caught from these waters may not win a state record, bass fishermen seldom leave empty-handed. Crappie fishing at Bardwell Lake is considered moderate with most of the success for catching this species at either Highview Marina, under the state highway 34 bridge or in Waxahachie and Mustang creeks during spawning. Fishing for catfish is usually excellent, especially when the lake elevation is gradually rising. A six or seven pound blue or channel cat caught with a rod and reel will certainly get the adrenaline started.
A favorite spot are the fishing piers at the marina. Two of the piers are enclosed for the convenience of customers during inclement weather. A small fee is charged for the use of these facilities.
No special rules or regulations pertaining to size restrictions or bag limits are in effect at Bardwell Lake. Fishermen need only to make certain that all fishing activities are in compliance with applicable state laws and avoid any posted restricted areas.
