Anybody fish Aquilla lately? Hows the bite been? I have not fished there in probably 4-5 years.

No takers? I have been trolling this post because I am curious as well. Aquilla is one of my favorite early spring lakes because it seems to warm faster.

Never been there but I was told it wasn’t worth the time with Whitney so close.

But I do like trying new water so if you have any general advice or sections of Aquila I’m all ears. Shoot I don’t even know where is good to put in there.

When I first started going out there years ago we would fish some humps out in deep water that had heavy grass on them. Caught a lot of quality fish off of those, including my personal best. The last couple of years for whatever reason the grass hasn't been there. The fishing was much tougher. Soooooo, I haven't been back since late spring last year. In my opinion it fished better than Whitney when the grass was present.

last time i was there we put in by an overpass and fished timber all day with no bite. went back under the over pass and fished open water and caught 20 or so fish but nothing with any size. Have not been back with Waco, Trading house, brazos, belton, and Stilhouse being shorter drive. Ive found some spots to try out with the navionics app but still havent gone yet. Me and Whitney have a love, hate relationship.

Three bites, three fish. Biggest one was 2.8 lbs.
Caught them all in 6-10 feet of water on green pumpkin T-rig. cheers

I've been wanting to get out to Tradinghouse. I went to Waco today and fished the Reynolds Creek area and caught about a 2 lbr, finally! No other bites but this was a violent strike. The water was around 48-49 range.

Ive fished trading house so much its not even fun anymore and seems pretty predictable to where the fish will be. Sad thing is, no clubs ever fish there.

Aquilla is tough, but if you are up for the challenge go ahead! I would just stick to shallow water and points.

When Waco was shut down from the flooding it was the only lake available and I fished it a bunch then. The last few times I've been out there to fish I've been in the kayak.

Aquila is a [censored] mud hole. With an [censored] for a warden patrolling it.

Just my opinion.

roflmao He does patrol that lake like a hawk, I've fished here since the 90's and have never once seen him on Whitney, I don't get it.

He wrote me a bogus ticket a while back....it still cost me $75 in "court fees" and gas to beat it. I feel like I still "got fined". Haha.
