I have never caught a smallmouth bass. Sad to say that as I have been fishing quite a bit in my time. Where in Texas can I go, that does not require a boat, to catch a smallmouth bass? I do have a kayak though.

Texoma, Belton, Canyon Lake, Texoma probably your bet bet though.

Go to the texoma ramp by the dam on the Texas side. You can fish the cove just to the west of the ramp from the shore. I haven’t caught big ones there, but I have caught a lot of them. I would wait till it cools off just a little, so they move closer to shore.

Not sure where you are located but the devil's river in west Texas has a good population of them. I've caught some 3-4lbers

Texoma, Belton or Stillhouse, I think Belton has the best population per acre.

Whitney is a multi record holder of the top 50 in Texas. Always worth a trip there.

Bridgeport will be good here in a few years. Been catching a lot of the 2019 stock 10-12 inches.

Have you heard of, or witnessed, a smallmouth being caught there in the past couple years?

Wait until November and hit Texoma. Put in at Eisenhower State park and head either direction with a small deep diving chartreuse crankbait.



I hate photobucket.
