Catfishing from the bank of Lake Tawakoni has been too easy and fun when you target them. The problem is there are just too many blue catfish in lake Tawakoni, you catch blue catfish no matter what fish species you were targeting, they can be pesky sometime, and I hate catfish dinks,...

So long Lake Tawakoni and thanks for more than a decade of fun. I especially enjoyed fishing with local anglers from Wills Point to Quinlan, they are the most unpretentious and down to earth I ever met, always willing to help or share information or fish tales, just good folks. I remember an older gentleman who waved to me from the bank when I waded in the water pretty far off at a sand bar near the SRA boat ramp. I of course ignored him and went on casting my rig out as usual, then walked back to shore slowly. The old gentleman was patiently waiting for me at the bank. Minutes later he told me that there used to be a house and a well out there where I was that I should be careful not to fall in and drown. The well was filled with rocks and concrete slabs so there was no danger there, but I was impressed with the caring nature of the man...

I will miss Lake Tawakoni, the fishing, the people, and the serene nature and wildlife that make this lake special.

I'll add a little details to make this thread useful rather than a typical fish bragging thread.

Lake Tawakoni has many good shoreline for bank fishing, but currently the challenge is to find shoreline that are free from bush stumps, there are channel cats and small blues in submerged willows or at the edge of flooded grass, but it's pretty tough to bank in such areas.

There three places that I found that have cleared gravel or hard bottom that you can bank fish at Tawakoni 1. Arm Point Park, 2. Wind Point Park, 3. Sky Point Park, with the right wind conditions all these places should produce.

With high water and flowing currents. Fish are scattered and banking will be tough right now, perhaps eventually things will settle down, good old T-wok will be heaven for bankers again. Meanwhile grab your surf rod and head to the spillway and catch your limits of hybrids and sandbass there.

Good luck and have fun fishing at the greatest all around fish catching lake in Texas, good old Lake Tawakoni.
