There has been a lot of fibbing going on about lake Athens being a good lake lately. The lake is small and smelly. Little to no grass, flat banks cover pretty much 95% of the lake, dink central. A good day out there is about like fishing white rock lake from the bank. I would not waste my time if I were y'all. Just giving you a heads up before you make that long torturous drive to Athens. Probably should just go to fork!

There is also some neon orange and green liquid coming from the pump station discharge. Scary.

Is there prize for number of posts? If so I'd like some TFF hand sanitizer for having to touch those creepy Athens bass.

If you can't catch bass at White Rock you might try another hobby.

I was going to say if you can't catch fish on Athens, you need to change hobbies. By far the easiest lake in Texas to fish.

Yep. Everyone sacks 35-38 lbs every time out. It's as easy as it gets. Just throw a line, they bite everything every cast.

I've went to Athens once and fished a tournament, and even for it being my first time on the lake I caught a 5 Fish LIMIT!!!! It's an awesome fishery

Best Spring Lake in Texas.
The only problem is you have to know how to fish it.
If you do, then a bad day is 50 bass and good day is 80 bass.
