As of recent, level has been the only issue. Great lake, has produced two sharelunkers along with a 14 pound record some years back. You might run into some schools of sandies and spotted bass while there too. New side is typically clear ad deep, old side is shallower and has more grass. It was listed in the Top Ten of the best bass lakes in Texas as far as keeper sized fish go a couple years back...lots of 2 to 4 pounders in there! I always stick with cranks and power worms. Never too crowded really. If you think you could launch, I'd say go for it. If just going to shoreline fish, i would say definitely go for as right now you can walk pretty much everywhere with low levels. I fish it about once a month when I can.
