There are four public places to fish in Weatherford:
1. Lake Weatherford. Try the wall area on the other side of the dam from the marina. Any of the locals can show you where it is, or try the marina barge. Although small the lake has big bass, crappie and catfish.
2. Sunshine Lake north of town.The best spot is near the boat ramp. Good bass and crappie.
3.Holland Lake Park. It is stocked with channel cat and trout in season. There are some giant catfish in the pond. Forget bass or sunfish.
4. Love Street Park on the west side. The locals catch bass from other lakes and dump them into the park. It is really just a large mud hole, but it has a handicap pier to fish from and sometimes big bass.
There are several good private lakes. If you can get permission there are bass.
And if you drive a short distance Mineral Wells State Park is great for crappie, bass and huge catfish.
The Brazos River is available off Tin Top road with a good ramp and parking. The river is deep in this stretch and you can motor to Lake Granbury in one direction and Horseshoe Bend in the other. The river has good catfish, white bass and crappie.
