Several years ago I had some buddies that fished the 'van city lake' I live in Tyler area and travel to Van on a regular basis; never seen any kind of sign of the lake.. I do know as you drive in to Van on Hwy 110 there is a large 'soil conservation lake" is that "IT"
directions or even a map would be appreciated.
And I thought I read that THe Canton lake that is behind the Walmart You now had to go to the police station for a permit to fish What period of time does the permit cover?
I have been on the "PURE OIL" lake ; took a friend there once we found a 'brush pile' and broke off so many times that I begain to wonder if the Bass had a knife. Later that day I took my push pole extented it down to the "brush pile' to find it was a pile of concrete blocks !
Last year the news reported that the dam on Pure Oil had broken
But I think the "Van City Lake" is East of town off of hwy 110 NOT SURE!!
I found it !!! Goggle earth has become a friend! It is east of Van and is on a road named "VAN CITY LAKE ROAD" how cool is that. Years ago Several of my fishing friends made trips to that lake to fish. THey always seemed to have good success. I have not been fishing in many years but with the purchase of this new ( used) boat I plan on making a trip to Van City Lake soon as the weather makes it possible. Small lake maybe some big bites there. thanks for you help b
Agree, smart move (I'm sure you've seen the stocking history) Van City was on the short list of lakes to re-visit this weekend (only got to fish it once). I'll be first in line if permits become available or the lake becomes part of PWF.
