For something truly different, Drive right through Texas and hit Broken Bow! Nice camping, don't know about fishing, but with the spots and smalies in that deep clear lake, wow!!!!

I know,I know... it's sacrilege to say that!

Amistad.

One of the best lakes for scenery and tough to figure out yet big enough that you won't get bored looking for them.

Man I've been wanting to go to Amistad for the longest time, I just haven't done it because I've heard it's tough to fish. I just can't see hauling the rig all the way out there for that

To add on to my topic, something that would be really great is a lake with some smallmouth. I've never caught one.. Been to belton and still house many times, just never have hung a smallmouth. I've heard Texoma has a good fishery for them but I'm sure its gonna be too late in the Spring..

But they could snuggle with the javelinas when it got cold.

The State park on Texoma is awesome for camping and the small mouth fishing is right there. Drive the boat out of the pocket where the ramp is, turn North and start fishing the bluffs and pockets. You will catch a small mouth and maybe a good one! Ray Roberts is about an hour South and West if you wanted to fish two lakes that are fairly close to each other. Ray Roberts has two State parks both with really nice camping and great fishing close by as well.


See you on the lake and have a great day!

I would go to Naconiche and get a cabin. This way you could fish Naconiche, Nacogdoches, Kurth, Pinkston, Murvaul, and little Lake Timpson. They all could fish good in middle to end of March depending on this weather. The lakes named are all within 30 mins of Naconiche. Kurth might be just a little further.
