Looking at some properties around the lake and was wondering how the fishing is up there. I've never been on the lake. I mainly fish for crappie and bass.
Does it get crowded in the summer with lots of skiers? Any info would be greatly apprecitated.

Sandbass and crappie are good, have friends who catch nice blacks also. As far as the traffic, YES during this time of year it is played on very often.

The fishing at Lake Weatherford is as good or better than the area lakes for crappie, catfish, sand bass, sunfish and large mouth bass. Some really large crappie and bass are caught.

If you are buying property be sure to get on the South end of the lake ( south of the old White Settlement Road crossing). Properties on the north end are on shallow water and have flooded. Property on Marina View Court is prime, as well as property on Parker Point.

There is a fair amount of boat traffic and PWC traffic from Memorial Day to Labor Day, but it is really quiet during the prime fishing seasons in the fall and spring.

By the way, I have retired from the marina so I think my post is objective.

Look hard at the property taxes. They never charged property tax, but now I hear they do even though it's 'city property'. Heard some horror strories!

The little lake would surprise you. I know of at least 4 fish over 10 that were caught out there last year. The lake record is bigger than Eagle Mountain's.

The lake can get stingy with the fish, but right now the water is up so its getting better.

I'm pretty sure the lake record is over 12lbs.
