I love fishing ponds with my fly rod. The fishing is extremely easy and I catch bigger sunfish and bluegill in the ponds than I do anywhere else. Fly fishing small lakes like Lake Raven and Buescher State park from my kayak would be second.
I picked lakes only because fishing the rivers was dangerous by yourself and they were a good drive away. Alligators, wild cats, and cotton mouths just the a few things keeping me from fishing Angelina River.
