I'm visiting some family in Mexia and have a day to fish before moving to my next location.

I can fish Mexia, Limestone or the river north of Fort Parker (where I'm spending two nights)

Trying to decide which lake I should target, and then what the boating hazards I should know about are.

Any thoughts?

I would try the river with a bobber rig setup using minnows or Jigs! I think it`s the Navasota

That sounds right, I know there is a boat ramp up there that can be accessed from within the park. I just didnt know how deep it is.. I can ask the rangers I suppose, but I have a large bass boat. The lake itself at Fort Parker I understand to be extremely shallow.

Anything under 22' you should have no problem getting launched back there. The ramp is pretty good!

Never done it, always wanted to, but this is the right time to try it...

So I went to the river at fort Parker state park.

The boat ramp was nice, the River is deep but I didn't catch anything, not even a nibble.


The next day I went limestone and caught a few small crappie, but nothing much to speak of.
